ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the seasonal influenza and 2009 H1N1 influenza vaccination coverage among pregnant women in the U.S. in the 2009-2010 period. To estimate the influenza coverage, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analyzed date from 10 states from the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System. The results show significantly higher coverage than has been reported for previous influenza vaccination and indicate that receipt of influenza vaccination is influenced by healthcare providers offering influenza vaccination.
