In 2016, Tdap vaccination coverage during pregnancy among women who had a live birth was 48.8%, an increase compared with 2015 vaccination coverage (42.1%).

Among respondents in the 2016 survey, 63.6% received an offer of Tdap vaccination from a doctor or other medical professional, 13.2% received a recommendation for but no offer of vaccination, and 23.2% did not receive a recommendation for Tdap vaccination.

Flu Vaccination Coverage Among Pregnant Women

During the 2015-16 flu season, an estimated 50% of pregnant women in the U.S. protected themselves and their babies from flu by getting a flu shot.

While this is a significant improvement since the years before the 2009 pandemic, about half of pregnant women, and their babies, remain unprotected from influenza. With only half of pregnant moms getting their flu vaccine, too many remain unprotected. Flu shots help to protect pregnant women and their babies from potentially serious illness during and after pregnancy.
