IMMUNIZATION MESSAGING

These are examples of statements you can make to your family members, friends, co-workers, and patients.

"Pregnant women should get a flu vaccine at any time during a pregnancy, and then a Tdap vaccination at the start of the third trimester." 

The CDC highly recommends that women get Tdap (to protect against whooping cough) between 27-36 weeks of pregnancy. Other vaccines, like the flu shot, can be given before or during pregnancy. Click here for more information.
