CDC: Too Few Pregnant Women Getting Flu, Tdap Vax

According to Dr. Chow, the CDC recommends that people get their flu vaccine before the end of October.

This includes healthcare workers, as well people aged over 65s, those with long-term health conditions and pregnant women.

"It takes about two weeks for your body to produce full immunity from when you get the flu shot to when you're sort of covered", he said.

This year's vaccine protects against four strains of flu. The source of such information is from the CDC Internet Panel Survey 2019, the website reads. The flu vaccine, CDC says, can be found in doctor's offices, clinics, health departments, pharmacies, and college health centers. However, ever since becoming an actual adult, I have seen the consequences of how quickly the flu can spread, especially in this type of environment.

The CDC said the flu shot lowers a pregnant woman's risk of hospitalization by an average of 40%.

The findings were based on a survey of about 2,100 women ages 18 to 49 who were pregnant between August 2018 and April 2019. About three-quarters of pregnant women said they had been, but of those, roughly a third remained unvaccinated.

Jamieson said women were generally more likely to accept the Tdap vaccine, possibly because it is newer so there are fewer misconceptions about it.

Researchers at The University of Toronto analyzed data from four million people in six different countries. Even following the best medical care, patient health can take a turn for the worse after returning home.

"Influenza and pertussis, or whooping cough, are serious infections that can be deadly for babies, especially for those who are too young to be vaccinated directly", said Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the CDC in a briefing. The next most common reason for not receiving either vaccine was safety concerns for the infant - despite both vaccines having a strong track record of proven safety.

During the call, Schuchat also emphasized the importance of clinicians sharing their own personal experiences and medical experience, and for female clinicians, that they were vaccinated during their pregnancies.

There were disparities among those who received vaccines, as women with providers that referred them for a vaccine had higher vaccination rates and African-American expecting mothers reported lower vaccination rates.

One myth addressed: the flu shot can give you the flu.

It may seem early, but it's officially flu season, and it's crucial for you and your loved ones to get a quick flu shot to protect you before things really ramp up.

The main goal of the health fair, Fisher said, is to inform students of all the health-related resources available to them both on and off campus. "It's been proven repeatedly that these vaccinations are safe for women and their developing babies". 67% of babies younger than two months old that suffer from whooping cough require hospital care; 69% of whooping cough deaths occur in that age group, the CDC said.

About 20 babies have died of whooping cough each year in the United States since 2010.
