          • Flu Shot Safer than Flu During Pregnancy

            01:29

            from Lee Memorial Health System Added 26 0 0

            With a baby on-board, many women are fearful of doing anything that might rock the boat. Health officials find too many expectant moms are not getting a flu shot. “We recommend that all pregnant women get vaccinated against the flu. Traditionally we haven’t been very good at giving it to pregnant women,” says Dr. Christina Cavanagh, who is a family physician with Lee Memorial Health System. Vaccination rates hover around 50% for pregnant women- who may fear getting the shot could harm their baby. Research finds the opposite is true. Getting the flu during pregnancy carries a higher rate of premature birth or miscarriage. It is also dangerous for mom. “Pregnant women we know are at much higher risk of getting complications from the flu. They can develop pneumonia, a higher rate of being hospitalized and even death from flu,” says Dr. Cavanagh. While this year’s flu mutated after the vaccine was created, getting the shot still provides protection and should lessen the severity of illness. Babies can’t get a flu shot until they turn six months old- so they are totally dependent on mom. “It takes several months for the baby’s immune system to really develop their own protection so those first few months they’re reliant on any antibodies that they’ve gotten from mom prior to delivery,” says Dr. Cavanagh. As prospective moms count down to delivery, they would be wise to consider there are several more months left in flu season.

                The cold weather and holidays are here along with its accompanying flu season. Many participants received flu vaccinations with the Southwest Utah Public Health Department's annual 'Flu Shoot-Outs'. David Heaton, public information officer for SUPHD, encourages everyone (over six months of age) to get a flu shot as the best preventative measure. EV-D68 or an enterovirus has garnered attention this fall, and Heaton explains enteroviruses are common and range in severity. The ways to prevent EV-D68 are the same as any cold or flu. "Washing your hands thoroughly this time of year," Heaton said. "Staying home from work or school if you are sick. Keeping your distance from people who are ill. Also, not touching your face—when your hands touch your eyes, nose or mouth, that's how the virus enters your body."

                    Despite all the awareness about flu prevention, pregnant women aren’t heeding the call. “We recommend that all pregnant women get vaccinated against the flu. Traditionally we haven’t been very good at giving it to pregnant women,” says Dr. Christina Cavanagh, who is a family physician with Lee Memorial Health System. Vaccination rates hover around 50% even though getting the flu during this vulnerable period could be dangerous for both baby and mom. “Pregnant women we know are at much higher risk of getting complications from the flu. They can develop pneumonia, a higher rate of being hospitalized and even death from flu,” says Dr. Cavanagh. As pregnant moms know, whatever they eat, baby eats. Whatever they drink, baby drinks. The same holds true with the flu shot. “It takes several months for the baby’s immune system to really develop their own protection so those first few months they’re reliant on any antibodies that they’ve gotten from mom prior to delivery,” says Dr. Cavanagh. Last month the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists issued a statement encouraging expectant moms to give the vaccination a shot. “Most women know that they’re obstetricians are looking out for their best interest and that of their baby’s. And if we can tell them how important we think it is to protect them and their babies, then I hope they will listen to that,” says Dr. Cavanagh. Flu season can span from September through February. The best time to get vaccinated is early in the season, regardless of trimester.

                      Dr. Lidia Tripolski of Pediatrics at Staten Island University Hospital says getting the flu shot should be at the top of your child’s back to school list. With over 1/5 of the population in United States getting the virus each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Tripolski says, it’s better to get he shot sooner than later.
