This article, published in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, reports on the results of a study to determine whether maternal vaccination during pregnancy was associated with a reduced risk of laboratory-confirmed influenza hospitalizations in infants less than six months old. The results showed that infants of vaccinated mothers were 45 to 48 percent less likely to have influenza hospitalizations than infants of unvaccinated mothers.
