Infants are particularly vulnerable to vaccine preventable diseases such as influenza and pertussis. Evidence suggests that immunizing pregnant women and close contacts reduces both maternal and infant morbidity and mortality. Prenatal care providers and other mid-level health care providers (midwives, nurses, physician assistants, etc.) have an important role in promoting vaccines to pregnant women. View the University at Albany School of Public Health for a list of online training and resources with a specific focus on influenza and pertussis. 

ACOG Immunization Webinars

Obstetrician-gynecologists provide many women with comprehensive preventive services. As part of this preventive care, ACOG encourages ob-gyns to become immunization champions. To help ob-gyns provide this crucial health care service, ACOG has developed a series of webinars to detail ACOG and ACIP immunization recommendations and provide resources for incorporating immunizations into routine practice. View ACOG Immunization webinars.
