Zeenews BureauNew York: According to a latest study getting flu shots during pregnancy do not increase the risk of losing a fetus. Instead, it may reduce the risk of miscarriage and stillbirth, the researchers found.The study was launched because of concerns over the safety of vaccines, especially the new vaccine to combat pandemic flu. Getting the flu while pregnant makes fetal death more likely, whereas the vaccination will only reduce the risk, the Norwegian research showed. The study is perhaps the largest look at the safety and value of flu vaccination during pregnancy, experts say. "This is the kind of information we need to provide our patients when discussing that flu vaccine is important for everyone, particularly for pregnant women," said Dr. Geeta Swamy, a researcher who studies vaccines and pregnant women at Duke University Medical Center. The study was released by the New England Journal of Medicine on Wednesday as the United States and Europe suffer through an early and intense flu season. A US obstetricians group this week reminded members that it`s not too late for their pregnant patients to get vaccinated.
