Swine Flu Update

Swine flu seems to be more on the rise as winter is progressing. The great thing however, is that we have the vaccine now! As many of you are aware, we do have the H1N1 vaccines in our clinic. The majority of our pregnant patients have received the vaccine and we have had no adverse reactions to the vaccine so far. If you would like the vaccine please feel free to come on in and get it! We are also offering it to our postpartum patients. The injection is safe with breastfeeding and may be the only way a baby under six months can get immunity (as babies unders six months cannot receive their own vaccine)- so moral of the story, get vaccinated, and stay well!
