Flu Vaccine Facts

  • Healthy women in their 2nd or 3rd trimesters of pregnancy have been found to be at higher risk of complications from influenza than nonpregnant women.
  • You may obtain the flu vaccine at your primary care physician’s office or your pharmacy. We currently do not offer the vaccine in our office.
  • FluMist® (the intranasal influenza vaccine) should not be given to pregnant women.
  • Breastfeeding is not a contraindication for any immunization.
  • Traditionally, the Health Department and the hospitals in the Tri-State area have restricted all children under the age of 14 from visitation during flu season.

We are physicians, hospitals and communities working together to help you live better.
