When to Get a Flu Shot 2019, According to a Doctor

CDC: Too Few Pregnant Women Getting Flu, Tdap Vax 2 in 3 pregnant women don't get flu or whooping cough shots, CDC reports

"Because the timing of the onset, peak and end of flu seasons varies from year to year and can not be predicted, it is hard to say when is the best time to be vaccinated for any one season", the CDC's website states.

"People should talk to their health care provider if they have concerns about getting a flu vaccine", Dr. Chow explains.

It's time to start thinking about rolling up a sleeve and getting vaccinated against influenza, Pennsylvania health officials said Tuesday. The source of such information is from the CDC Internet Panel Survey 2019, the website reads.

About three-quarters of the women surveyed said that during pregnancy their providers recommended the flu vaccine and the Tdap vaccine, which protects against whooping cough, tetanus and diphtheria.

Myth: I am pregnant so shouldn't get the flu vaccine.

The risk of these infections are greatest among babies less than 6 months of age and these babies are also at a great risk of hospitalization due to influenza because of their immature immune system.

Lake County Public Health is offering seasonal flu vaccines for $2.

The CDC says the vaccine prevented an estimated 5.3 million influenza illnesses in the 2016-2017 year. "Most of the time flu activity peaks between December and February, and it can last as late as May".

Yesterday, we saw USA troops, but this time they were on their way out of the area, and that terrified people", he said. The Defense Department had also posted photos of SDF fighters withdrawing from the area and dismantling fortifications.

The CDC surveyed almost 2,100 women ages 18 to 49 who were pregnant any time between August 2018 and April 2019. About three-quarters of pregnant women said they had been, but of those, roughly a third remained unvaccinated.

And finally, Dr. Chow says anyone who's had Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS, a severe paralyzing illness), may not want to get the shot.

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

The two vaccines are imperative to the health of the mother and her child, as women who are vaccinated develop antibodies against both diseases. Studies show flu and whooping cough vaccines are safe for pregnant women and developing babies.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that you get a flu vaccine by the end of October.

So if you're forced to wait to get the flu shot, how should you protect yourself?

It said that only 35% had received both vaccinations.

Flu vaccination lowers the risk that a pregnant woman will need to be hospitalized due to the flu by 40 percent, according to the CDC. The risk of hospitalization in babies less than 2 months age, due to whooping is also reduced by 91 percent if the mother is vaccinated says CDC.
