The Centers for Disease Control and University of Washington experts are reminding pregnant women to get a flu shot.
Dr. Anna Panighetti is an OB-GYN with UW Medicine. She says even though some women might have concerns about getting vaccines during pregnancy, the data shows that the flu shots are beneficial for women and their babies.
"Some of the antibodies that they develop, will pass to the baby,” Panighetti said. “And looks like it gives the baby a little bit of protection from the flu virus."
