Flu Shots are Safe, Free, and Important

Research results encourage pregnant women to ...

"In the past, people have been hospitalized for not getting their flu shot and the strain changes each year, so it's very important to get your flu shot", registered nurse Shelbrina Lomax said.

Getting a flu shot doesn't just protect soon-to-be moms, it also protects the baby, the CDC said. The child, the first to die in the state, had not received a flu vaccination.

Vaccines are recommended for anyone at least six months old. A KU spokesperson said the school had to cancel flu shot clinics because of the delay. "Since we can not predict who will develop a serious complication from the flu, we recommended that all children over the age of 6-months-old receive the flu vaccine for the best protection".

Lynnette Brammer, leader of the US Centers for Disease Control and Protection's Domestic Influenza Surveillance team, said that "it's not uncommon to start to see small numbers of deaths around this time of year due to influenza even when activity is low".

The 2017-28 flu season was one of the deadliest in recent memory. Lomax says it's too early to tell if this flu season will be as bad as a year ago.

The flu study, which analyzed data from over 2 million pregnant women, also found that "more than 80 percent of pregnancies overlapped with flu season, underscoring the likelihood that pregnant women will be exposed to flu at some point during their pregnancy".
