ACOG Maternal Immunization Patient Education Resources

Tools for Educating Pregnant Women

 Flu Vaccine      

Given the demonstrated efficacy and safety of vaccines and the large potential for prevention of many infectious diseases, ACOG recommends that obstetricians-gynecologists include immunizations as an integral part of their practice. A vaccination recommendation from a provider has been shown to be the strongest predictor of vaccine uptake among adults. As a trusted health care provider, you play a crucial role in safeguarding the health of all your patients, including pregnant women.

ACOG's new patient education tools were developed to reach pregnant women with key information on maternal immunization. These resources are designed for use on practice websites, patient portals, and social media pages and feature evidence-based information to highlight important facts patients should know about Tdap and influenza vaccination during pregnancy.
