The ACIP ( Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices) recommends that pregnant women who have never had the Tdap vaccine should be immunized during their second or third trimester rather than in the immediate postpartum period. Tdap is a vaccination for tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis. Also the ACIP recommends that children 6 months to 8 years of age should receive two doses of influenza vaccine during the current season if they did not receive at least one dose of the vaccine during the 2010-11 season.  Call your Loveland Physician to be vaccinated!
