Pass the Protection On
Pregnant women and their babies are more susceptible to complications from diseases like pertussis and the flu.
When pregnant women get vaccinated against certain diseases, they pass along the immunities they receive to their babies, providing much-needed protection until they are old enough to receive their own vaccines.
Vaccines for Pregnant Women
Pregnant women who contract the flu are at a higher risk for severe complications. The flu vaccine provides safe and effective protection for both mother and child.
Pertussis can be deadly for infants, but vaccinating during the third trimester of every pregnancy helps protect your baby during the first few months of life.
