PREVIOUS GENERAL MEETINGS
This topic and date was ultimately the last in-person general meeting for SDIC. The combination of COVID-19 and interagency policy will restrict the group from gathering further. All meetings will be remote indefinitely.
If you have information to share or would like to be considered as a future presenter on the topics, please email Eugene.Beronilla@sdcounty.ca.gov.
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.
