Expectant Mothers in Need of Vaccines

Expectant mothers are also being urged to take precautionary measures against the flu.

The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services said pregnancy can increase the risk for complications from the flu and contracting the flu virus during pregnancy can increase the chance of a miscarriage.

The Kentucky Department for Public Health is urging expectant mothers to get a flu vaccine before the onset of the flu season in February or March.

Leading health officials agree the flu vaccine is safe for pregnant women at all stages of pregnancy and for breastfeeding mothers.
