Maternal Flu Vaccination Pays Dividends in Infants

Infants younger than 6 months are not eligible for influenza vacations, yet are at high risk for flu complications. A study following mothers with healthy infants older than <2 weeks for three flu seasons found that infants whose mothers had been immunized for the flu had 41% lower rates than infants of unvaccinated mothers.
