Abstract

Despite evidence regarding the benefits of influenza immunization during pregnancy for both the pregnant woman and her infant, as well as reassuring safety data, influenza vaccination rates in pregnancy have lagged. The 2009 influenza pandemic was accompanied by increased maternal vaccination rates. In this article, we review programmatic and research priorities with regard to overcoming barriers to influenza immunization of pregnant women.
