swine flu

THE LATEST
The American College if Obstetricians and Gynecology is urging all pregnant women to get the flu shot, and last week the Center for Disease Control and Prevention asked health providers to encourage pregnant women to get flu shots.
What every parent needs to know about the new flu vaccine for fall 2010.
This week is National Influenza Immunization week, so I thought it would be a good time to remind everyone about the need to continue to get vaccinated for both seasonal and H1N1 flu.
I have been off from my pediatric office today, but as you know, I continue to have e-mail correspondence with radio listeners, Web site visitors and phone calls with friends as well as patients.
Now that doctor’s offices are receiving their supplies of H1N1 (swine flu) vaccines, my office phones are ringing with new and different questions about swine flu.
The title of this should be first…before second. What do I mean by that? It seems easy enough, first always comes before second right?
I had an e-mail question from a pregnant woman & @blossominvites (via twitter) asking my thoughts about H1N1 vaccine and adjuvants and mercury.
I imagine that you may be getting tired of reading my blogs on swine flu, and I can assure you, we are all (pediatricians that is) tired of talking about it too. But, from the phone calls that our office is being inundated with, there are still more questions and concerns about the H1N1 (swine) flu.
Now that President Obama has officially declared that the H1N1 virus has caused a state of national emergency, it seems that some parents have a different idea.
I have the opportunity to see (not treat) a lot of pregnant women in my practice and they have been asking me my opinion about flu vaccine during pregnancy.
