Hello Princess,


Thank you for the question.

Influenza vaccine can be given as an effort to prevent influenza virus infection. As is known, Indonesia, as a tropical country, is susceptible to influenza outbreaks throughout the year. Therefore, by giving this vaccine, your immunity will be better against this disease.


Pregnant women are one of the groups of people recommended by WHO to get this vaccine, in addition to infants and children, the elderly, medical personnel, and sufferers of chronic diseases. This vaccine is safe given to pregnant women at any age in the womb. As long as you don't have an allergy to this component of the vaccine, even the influenza vaccine does not often cause serious side effects. As for some of the side effects that can be found after the administration of this vaccine is usually mild, such as fever, inflammation in the injection area, nausea, palpitations, and so on. You can further discuss this with your doctor or obstetrician when the COVID-19 outbreak has subsided. Because, in order to minimize your risk of contracting COVID-19, you need to first limit the outside of the house (including to the doctor), except in emergency cases.


It should also be understood, that the influenza vaccine does not necessarily prevent you from contracting COVID-19 given the different causes (COVID-19 is caused by a new Corona virus). So, to prevent your risk of contracting COVID-19, the main thing to do is stay at home, improve personal hygiene and the environment, and increase your endurance.


I hope this helps.
