Pregnancy and H1N1

Take a moment to read an interesting story about one pregnant woman’s tragic experience with H1N1. In an ironic twist, the physical therapist helping this woman recover after her four month hospitalization also happens to be an anti-vaccine loony.

The danger this virus poses to pregnant women is impressive, and we’ve had some very frightening cases here as well. One of the many inconsistencies in public health guidance is the extent to which we go to provide a zero-risk environment for health care workers, while allowing pregnant day care workers and school teachers to continue working. Who do you think is at greater risk for H1N1 exposure?

Anyway, get them vaccinated.
