Types of vaccine part 56

Immunization and pregnancy

Influenza

Inactivated influenza vaccine is now recommended for pregnant women in many industrialized countries because of evidence  of benefit to the mother and the infant. LAV vaccines pose a theoretical risk to the fetus and are generally contraindicated in pregnant women.

An additional vaccination recommended for pregnant women is seasonal inactivated influenza vaccine. It is considered safe and is recommended for all pregnant women during the influenza season. This recommendation is motivated not only by the potential severe course of influenza during pregnancy, but also to protect infants against influenza during their vulnerable first months of life.
