Pregnant women are now getting 4 vaccine doses: Flu shot and DTaP
VLA Comment: There is no science behind TDap (Boostrix by GSK) for pregnant mothers as a whooping cough preventative for the in-utero child. Where is the study that proves that giving the pregnant mother DTaP has given immunity to the birthed infant? The recommendation to give it to pregnant women is based on 40 rats (not primates). Although, they state there was no adverse effect such as malformations in the fetus, was there a long term study as the infant rats developed. Just because there is no obvious fetal malformations does not mean that the vaccine has not affected the future neurological development. Read the insert for yourself.
