Pregnant Women




Dear Obstetric Shared Care GPs,
 
CONNECTING YOU WITH THE NEWS YOU NEED FOR
GP OBSTETRIC SHARED CARE
 

 
STATEMENT ON THE ADMINISTRATION OF SEASONAL INFLUENZA VACCINES IN 2020
 

Influenza vaccination for pregnant women:
 

  • Influenza vaccine is recommended in every pregnancy and at any stage of pregnancy.

 

  • Influenza vaccine can safely be given at the same time as pertussis vaccine.

 

  • For women who received an influenza vaccine in 2019, revaccinate if the 2020 influenza vaccine becomes available before the end of pregnancy.

 

  • For women who receive an influenza vaccine before becoming pregnant, revaccinate during pregnancy to protect the unborn infant.

GP OBSTETRIC SHARED CARE PODCAST SERIES
 

There has never been a better time to listen to a podcast.

Though the format has been around for a couple of decades now, it's only in the last few years that they really hit their stride. You might say that we're living through a golden age of podcasts, if you're the kind of person who needs all their culture categorised into neat eras!

Whether you're looking to binge while commuting, cleaning, taking a bath, or hunkering down for a road trip, given long haul flights are out of the question, we guarantee our Obstetric Shared Care Podcast Series will do wonders to pass the time.

We have just added a new Podcast!

What it's about:

A uniquely personal perspective into GP Obstetric Shared Care, with some much-needed historical context for our current program.

Dr Jenni Goold, shares her thoughts about the GP Obstetric Shared Care Program - both then and now.

Make it your mission not to miss it!
