By Regina Russo - bio | email

The Maternal Fetal Specialists at Trihealth are educating OB care providers on what to tell their patients who have not received the H1N1 vaccine but someone in their house has it.

According to Dr. Michael P. Marcotte, "the recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control  is to be put on prophylactic dose of antiviral medication that prevents H1N1.  And while she is on the medication, as best as she can, stay isolated from respiratory droplets and she should use common techniques recommended to all women  in regard to avoiding infection."
