Reasons to Get a Flu Shot While Pregnant
- Getting the flu while pregnant can cause more severe illnesses and increase the risk of pregnancy complications
- The flu shot is safe and important for women during any trimester of their pregnancy
- The flu shot antibodies may be passed to your baby to provide him or her protection after they’re born
- It takes about 2 weeks for your body to generate antibodies, so it’s important to get the flu shot early
