When I was pregnant, I remember thinking it was extra important to get a flu shot to protect my own health. But as it turns out, it’s not just moms-to-be who benefit from the vaccine: Newborn babies also gain some health protection, according to a study released this week in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine. Research revealed that brand-new babes whose moms were vaccinated while pregnant have less of a chance of getting the flu themselves or being hospitalized with a respiratory infection than newborns whose moms weren't vaccinated.
