ABSTRACT
The article presents a research conducted by researcher K. Zaman and colleagues to find whether influenza immunization during pregnancy reduced influenza in infants and respiratory illness in mothers. The study was conducted on 340 mothers between the age of 18 to 36 years, who were in their third trimester of pregnancy. An intention-to-treat analysis was used, but only 93% of patients who were followed throughout the study were included.
