Maternity healthcare professionals (MHCPs) play an important role in promoting vaccines and influencing the perspectives of pregnant women. This systematic review outlines the views and experiences of these key workforce members involved in the provision of the maternal influenza vaccine worldwide. In order to promote vaccine uptake, results indicate that it is important to educate MHCPs, ensure there is sufficient time for discussions, and implement electronic vaccination prompts. These, in addition to national policies and guidelines, helped increase the confidence of these professionals in recommending vaccination.
