Pregnant Women Send Phones Red Hot

Pregnant women are flooding the phone lines at prenatal units across Sweden with concerns over Swine flu.

Women who are pregnant are among the high risk groups to be first in line in Sweden's mass immunisation programme and the national daily newspaper Dagens Nyheter reports that many women are asking when in the pregnancy is it safe to have the shot, how dangerous is the virus to children and when will the vaccine be available.

The head of a prenatal unit in Traneberg outside Stockholm, Ann Göransson told DN that they didn't know much more than the women ringing up and that they were still waiting for directives from the health authorities.
