Pregnancy and the flu
Did you know that pregnancy brings changes to the immune system, heart, and lungs? This puts pregnant mothers at higher risk of flu-related complications. Flu vaccination during pregnancy can help protect both the mother and her unborn baby.
Flu spreads more easily by children
Children are also known as 'super-spreaders’ because they're more likely to contract the flu at kindergarden or school. They can then spread the virus by passing it onto each other and by bringing it home to more vulnerable family members such as their infant siblings and grandparents.
Protecting children from the flu
Childhood should be a time of discovery and joy. If your child catches the flu, they are at higher risk of developing flu-related complications and even death. Take steps to prevent the flu to keep them growing and developing well.
