As per a study published in the Lancet Infectious Disease Journal, the year-round vaccination of pregnant women is likely to reduce infant flu virus infection rates by an average of 30%, increase birth weights by 15% and result in babies having less influenza.

The development of a child inside the mother affects that child during its entire life, and low birth weight has lifelong health implications for a child. The overall positive effect of performing these vaccinations – which is not expensive – is quite significant.

For the study, 3,693 mothers (between the ages of 15 and 40) were recruited and randomised into two different annual research groups (or cohorts) from April 2011 through September 2013.
