To the Editor: We read with interest the recent publication by Rowe and colleagues.1 The authors reported low influenza vaccine coverage (39%) among pregnant women in Victoria from 2015 to 2017. Individual‐level factors associated with this finding included greater maternal age, primigravidity, early antenatal care and GP‐led antenatal care.1
