Flu or flu shot during pregnancy won't raise autism risk in child, study finds
Women who catch the flu or receive a flu shot during their pregnancy may rest easy knowing that neither event seems to raise their child's risk for autism. That's the finding from a new study of nearly 200,000 children born in California between 2000 and 2012. The results of this study confirm that neither getting influenza during pregnancy or getting a flu vaccine in the second or third trimester is associated with risk of autism in the child, said study author Lisa Croen.
