Campaign to Restore Child Health: Vaccines in Pregnancy Not Tested for Safety

In recent years the CDC has made recommendations that women receive flu vaccines and TDaP vaccines during their pregnancy even though the package inserts state there are no long term safety studies to justify this practice. Mothers are reporting miscarriage, pre-term labor and health issues for themselves and their children following these vaccines. A recent CDC study found that pregnant women vaccinated with the influenza vaccine had 2 times greater odds of miscarrying their babies compared to women who did not receive flu vaccine. Here’s one mother’s story of her twins after a flu vaccine in pregnancy. Share your story and hashtag it #restorechildhealth #worldmercuryproject.
