Vaccinations in pregnancy

Whooping Cough

Whooping cough vaccination is offered from sixteen weeks of pregnancy. You are advised to have the whooping cough vaccine in each pregnancy. This is to allow for the protection of your newborn baby. The protection will pass through the placenta and protect your baby before their routine immunisation program starts at eight weeks. For further information, see this leaflet:



All pregnant women are advised to have the Flu vaccine if pregnant at any stage between October and March. Flu can be more serious in pregnancy because your immune system is naturally weakened to support a successful pregnancy so you may be less able to fight off infections. Speak to you midwife as to where you can get you Flu vaccination. For further information see this website:
