Immunisation for pregnancy


Are you pregnant?

Babies whose mothers get a flu vaccine during pregnancy are protected from the moment of delivery and continue to be protected for up to six months after birth. That’s important because babies under six months are too young to get the flu vaccine themselves – the only way they can be protected is if their mother gets vaccinated during pregnancy.

Ask your doctor, specialist, nurse or midwife about getting your free seasonal flu vaccination today or find out more on the Department’s immunisation website.

Information videos for pregnant women:
• 2018 Influenza vaccination in pregnancy – free flu shots
• 2018 Influenza vaccination in pregnancy – part of good pregnancy care

Information videos for health professionals:
• 2018 Influenza vaccination in pregnancy – Information for Health Care Professionals
