Flu vaccine in pregnant women
According to CDC recommendations, all pregnant women should receive the flu vaccine.
In "Managing patient perceptions of the influenza vaccine" [December 2015], I am concerned because the article says the flu vaccine is cautioned/contraindicated in pregnant women (Table 2 and page 43). This is incorrect. According to the CDC recommendations, all pregnant women or those planning to become pregnant should have the flu vaccine. I think the article is misleading with these facts and could cause confusion.—MELANIE BEST, CRNP, Seneca, Pa. (208-6)
