At five months pregnant, Erin Brown isn’t sure yet whether she will be vaccinated against the swine flu this fall.
“I’m still a little bit on the fence about it,” said the 23-year-old Tulsan. “Just the idea of having a vaccine I don’t know exactly how it was cultivated and what’s in it is scary. I’m a little iffy about getting something that hasn’t been tested very long when I’m growing a child.”
Pregnant women across Tulsa and the state are echoing Brown’s concerns, particularly since the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently put pregnant women among the five priority groups for swine flu immunizations.
Pregnant women are at higher risk of complications and death, and are four times as likely to be hospitalized with the disease, the CDC said.
