2 Protects 2

2 Protects 2 is a collaborative educational program between Families Fighting Flu and the Partnership for Maternal and Child Health of Northern New Jersey aimed at increasing public awareness about the importance of influenza (flu) and pertussis (whooping cough) vaccinations for pregnant women, especially among African American and Latina populations. A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that 65% of pregnant women are not vaccinated against flu and whooping cough, although these diseases pose significant risks to pregnant women and infants.   

Did You Know?

  • Between 2010 and 2018, pregnant women accounted for 24 - 34% of flu-related hospitalizations in females aged 15 - 44 years.1
  • Infants less than six months of age have the highest incidence of flu-related hospitalization and mortality among children.2
  • Similar to influenza, pertussis-related morbidity and mortality are highest among infants less than one-year-old, and this age group accounts for 88% of reported pertussis deaths.3

As part of this program, educational materials were created in English and Spanish. Download these materials today and use them to help raise awareness about the importance of maternal vaccinations!
