Link between the flu shot and miscarriages


>>>WELCOME BACK. A NEW STUDY FOUND WOMEN WHO HAD MISIGECAS BETWEEN 2010 AND 2012 WERE MORE LIKELY TO HAVE WACK TO BACK FLU SHOTS. THE SHOTS INCLUDED INFECTION AGAINST SWINE FLU. EVEN WITH THE NEW INFORMATION HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS WANT MORE RESEARCH AND THEY ALSO DO NOT WANT TO DETER PREGNANT WOMEN FROM GETTING THE FLU SHOT. I KNOW A LOT OF WOMEN ARE QUESTIONING THIS, BECAUSE THEY ARE ASKED TO GET THE FLU SHOT. Dr. CHANDRA ADAMS JOINS US THIS MORNING TO HASH THIS OUT. I REMEMBER BEING PREGNANT AND SAYING GET THE FLU SHOT. AND I WAS A LITTLE SKEPTICAL ABOUT IT EVEN THOUGH THEY SAID THE RISK, THE BENEFIT OUTWEIGH THE RISK.>>>ABSOLUTELY, ABSOLUTELY. AND THAT IS STILL WHAT WE’RE SAYING. THIS STUDY IS REALLY JUST A CONVERSATION STARTER. THEY LOOKED AT TWO DIFFERENT GROUPS WITH TWO DIFFERENT OUTCOMES AND COMPARED WITH IT PROCEEDING BEHAVIOR WITHIN A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TIME. THEY COULD HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT ANYTHING AND THE IMPORTANT THICKS TO REMEMBER IS ASSOCIATION DOESN’T NECESSARILY DETERMINE CAUSALITY.>>Melanie: YOU THINK THE SAMPLE SITE CONTINUES TO GROW AND THIS SHOULD CONTINUE THE BE A CONVERSATION , BUT AT THIS POINT WITH FLU SEASON COMING UP YOU DON’T WANT WOMEN TO SAY THEY DON’T WANT THE SHOT.>>>THESE NUMBERS ARE NOT BIG ENOUGH TO MAKE A CONCLUSION. ONLY 500 WOMEN IN EACH GROUP AND OUT OF THOSE, ONLY 17 HAD THE OUTCOME THEY WERE LOOKING AT.>>>WHEN YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT HAVING A HEALTHY PREGNANCY THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS YOU SHOULD NOT DO. BUT FLU SHOT IS SOMETHING YOU ENCOURAGE. WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT YOU’VE HAD IT IN THE YEARS PRIOR TO IS THERE A CONCERN THERE?>>AGAIN, LOOKING AT THE STUDY IT WAS FROM 2010 TO 2012. THE FLU SHOT CHANGES EVERY YEAR BASED ON WHAT LAST YEAR’S WAS AND YOU CAN’T EXTRAPOLATE IT TO WHAT IS HAPPENING THIS YEAR.>>>LADIES IF YOU’RE PREGNANT OR THINKING ABOUT IT THE BENEFIT OF THE FLU SHOT DOES OUTWEIGH THE RISK. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT PICTURES THAT SURFACED FROM NAVAL HOSPITAL JACKSONVILLE, NURSES POTENTIALLY SHOWING A BABY, A NEWBORN BABY MAKING THIS BABY DANCE. THERE WAS ALSO A PICTURE WHERE THEY’RE CALLING BABY MIN SATANS, I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THIS, BECAUSE YOUR SAID THIS HOSPITAL SHOULD NEVER HAD HAD THOSE BABIES OUT OF THE ROOM WITH THE MOM IN THE FIRST PLACE.>>ONLY UNDER EXTENUATIN CIRCUMSTANCING, WHICH OPERATES UNDER THE PRINCIPALS THAT BABIES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE ROOMING WITH MOM 24 HOURS A DAY. ENCOURAGED ALL PROCEDURES ARE DONE IN THE ROOM WITH THE PARENTS. THERE ARE ONLY TWO BABY HOSPITALS IN THE CITY, NAVAL NOT ST. VINCENT SOUTHSIDE AND IT IS JUST SURPRISING THIS BABY WAS KIND OF HANGING OUT AT THE DESK.>>>AND IT IS NOT BECAUSE THE BABY COULD BE IN DANGER, BUT IT IS REALLY ENCOURAGING THE MOM TO ALWAYS BE WITH THAT BABE BOY HAVE THAT BONDING TIME IN THOSE FIRST FURST DAYS.>>AND TO ENCOURAGE BREAST-FEEDING. BABIES THAT STAY NEAR THEIR MOTHERS ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE BREAST-FED.>>>IF YOU ARE AT A HOSPITAL WHERE THEY DO TAKE YOUR BABY TO DO CERTAIN TESTS, THIS IS SO RARE. MOMS SHOULD NOT BE CONCERNED THAT THIS IS HAPPENING RAMPANT THROUGHOUT HOSPITALS.>>ABSOLUTELY. WORK AT SEVERAL HOSPITALS AND LABOR AND DELIVERY NURSES ARE TIP DRY SOME OF THE KINDEST PEOPLE AND LOVING AND GENTLE PEOPLE WITH YOUR BABIES THAT YOU’RE FINE.>>Melanie: WE DO HAVE PATIENTS THAT ARE CONCERNED AND THEY DO HAVE THE RIGHT TO KEEP THAT BABY IN THE ROOM TO GET THOSE TESTS DONE. THEY CAN SAY, OKAY, I’D RATHER DO THEM IN THE ROOM.>>>IF A TEST CAN BE DONE IN THE ROOM, A PARENT DOES HAVE THE RIGHT TO ASK IF IT CAN BE DONE IN THEIR PRESENCE.>>Melanie: ALL OF THIS STUFF, DEFINITELY TALK WITH YOUR DOCTOR
