For years now, we have been offering our pregnant patients the annual vaccination against seasonal flu (influenza).
The flu vaccination is explicitly recommended for expectant mothers from the 2nd trimester of pregnancy. We have now received the first delivery of the vaccine and have started vaccinating.
The pertussis vaccination has now also been added. It is recommended for pregnant women from the 3rd trimester of pregnancy - regardless of whether a vaccination has been given before.
The whooping cough vaccination during pregnancy transfers the antibodies to the unborn child and thus provides important nest protection for the first months of life.
