The flu continues to hit the Tristate hard. New research confirms the importance of getting a flu shot while pregnant.

Dr. Roshini Raj discussed the study during GDNY on Thursday.

The research found no evidence that the vaccine increases the risk of losing a fetus, and may prevent some deaths. Getting the flu while pregnant makes fetal death more likely, the Norwegian research showed. The flu vaccine has long been considered safe for pregnant women and their fetus. U.S. health officials began recommending flu shots for them more than five decades ago, following a higher death rate in pregnant women during a flu pandemic in the late 1950s

Dr. Roshini Raj is a gastroenterologist at NYU Langone
