In table 1 of this Feature (BMJ 2013;346:f3037, doi:10.1136/bmj.f3037), we would like to add a note that the surgeon general recommended, in 1960, that all pregnant women be vaccinated.1 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention first made a specific recommendation for pregnant women in their second and third trimesters in 19972 (not 2000, as stated in the table), and expanded this to all pregnant women in 20043 (as stated in the table).
