Washington: New mothers and obese people, two groups that not typically identified as risk groups, have been found at a greater risk of death and other severe outcomes from influenza, according to a study.But, in contrast to current assumption, ethnic minorities such as American Aboriginal People and pregnant women were not found to have more complicated influenza and would not need priority vaccination.Lead author Dr. Dominik Mertz, an assistant professor of medicine of McMaster`s Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine, said that policy makers and public health organizations need to recognize the poor quality of evidence that has previously supported decisions on who receives vaccines during an epidemic.
