You can get the influenza vaccination at any time during your pregnancy, and at any time of the year. You can also have it at the same time as you have your whooping cough (pertussis) vaccination.
Influenza (commonly called ‘the flu’) is a highly contagious viral infection that can have serious impacts on pregnant women and infants.
Influenza vaccination during pregnancy is safe, and effective.
The influenza vaccine is free for all pregnant women in Australia, every time they are pregnant.
