Pregnant women who receive a flu vaccine also protect their children. "I believe that the science that we have extended is also pregnant women who receive a flu vaccine. Beginning with the reports of a pregnant woman who receives a flu vaccine, she also protects her children.
But for pregnant women, flu can be dangerous because pregnant women are considered to be at high risk because they are more prone to influenza complications.
In addition to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the flu vaccine has received only 49.1 percent of pregnant women in the United States, in addition to the risk of a recent flu season.
"When a pregnant woman comes and asks, should I get a flu vaccine?" "Says Laura Riley, Professor of the Foundation, and Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Weill Cornell Medicine. My answer is yes, "she said at a press conference on September 27th.
"The reason is that pregnancy changes the immune system during a healthy pregnancy," says Riley. Immune system does not work properly to fight the virus When pregnant women get flu, one of them suffers more severely than a pregnant woman and as pregnancy reaches the second trimester of pregnancy, the probability of an increased illness and even death.
"It's not a changing immune system that makes a pregnant woman more susceptible to influenza because the size of the female lungs is decreasing as the pregnancy progresses (and the fetus has more room to grow)," he says. "The process of getting rid of the infection is even more difficult."
"Infection also threatens the fetus as a mother does: if a mother has a long fever caused by flu, it leads to childbirth," says Riley.
Another common problem is that pregnant women who become infected during pregnancy are more likely to have preterm births than pregnant women who have not had influenza.
"This is a problem we see every year," says Riley. "The problems that accompany the initial work may be a life-long problem for some children."
"The flu vaccine creates antibodies in the body that penetrate the placenta into the fetus, which protects the child from exposure to flu during the first six months of life," says Riley.
In fact, the CDC and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommend that every pregnant woman receive a flu vaccine. "They can do it at any stage of pregnancy," says Riley.
"The women's immune system remains in this state of emergency two weeks after birth, so it is recommended that women receive a vaccine after delivery if they do not," she said.
"Studies show that pregnant women who took the vaccine were less likely to stay in hospital than women who did not. Pregnant women naturally want to protect their children and the vaccine is effective and safe," says Riley.
According to the CDC, last season's flu season was the worst in the last four decades, with about 80,000 deaths and 900,000 cases requiring hospitalization.
