1. Influenza vaccination uptake is extremely low among pregnant women in Hong Kong.
2. Influenza vaccination uptake can be increased by providing more education to pregnant women about the importance of vaccination during pregnancy, informing them about current Centre for Health Protection recommendations about use of the vaccine during pregnancy, and having health care providers advise pregnant women to be vaccinated.
