  • Should I get the flu shot during pregnancy?

    Please get a quadrivalent vaccination for influenza as soon as you can as it includes 2 types of Influenza A and 2 types of Influenza B). Pregnant women are among the highest people at risk for complications and death from influenza illness. Despite the disappointingly low efficacy of the current vaccine, a 1/3 chance of protection is better than no chance when so much is at stake. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/vaccine/quadrivalent.htm READ MORE
