Pregnancy

Pregnancy Category C: Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with AFLURIA. It is also not known whether AFLURIA can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. AFLURIA should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.

Nursing Mothers

AFLURIA has not been evaluated in nursing mothers. It is not known whether AFLURIA is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when AFLURIA is administered to a nursing woman.

For details it is recommended to speak to the doc/.pharmacist who has prescribed the vaccine, take care, be well & safe!
