Vaccinations and Immune Therapy

Flu Vaccine

The Department of Health (2015) advises pregnant women to have the flu vaccine to prevent complications of flu passing to your baby.

Whooping Cough

Research from the vaccination programme in England shows that vaccinating pregnant women against whooping cough has been highly effective in protecting young babies until they can receive their own vaccinations from two months of age.

Please note the Immune Therapy programme prescribed for you should not affect you having the recommended flu vaccine.
