October 21, 2019

(relaxing music) – [Spokesperson] Pregnant
women are a very high priority group for influenza immunisation. Influenza immunisation is
part of good pregnancy care. If a pregnant woman catches influenza, she risks her pregnancy
and the life of her baby. Influenza causes more
hospitalizations and deaths in babies than whooping cough. – You should be immunised
against influenza each time you fall pregnant no
matter what time of the year. And it’s never too late to have it. Influenza immunisation
in pregnancy is safe and gives over 60% protection to babies. – [Spokesperson] If you’re
pregnant, be immunised.
