Pregnant Brunswick County woman dies of H1N1 virus

Brunswick County's health director said the death of a new mother is the county's first related to the H1N1 virus. Fred Michael said the woman was pregnant when she tested positive about a month and a half ago for the swine flu at Brunswick Community Hospital. After doctors transferred her to New Hanover Regional Medical Center, Michael said the woman was sent to Duke to get her baby as healthy as possible. He said doctors delivered the child over the weekend; just days before the woman died. Michael said the Brunswick County Health Department is offering the H1N1 vaccine to pregnant women if they read and sign a consent form. He said several pregnant women have received the vaccine since the CDC suggested the protocol earlier this week.

I WORK AT NEW HANOVER REGIONAL THEY ONLY TEST YOU FOR HINI IF YOU ARE IN INTENSIVE CARE LOOKS LIKE THEY WOULD TEST YOU AND TREAT YOU BEFORE YOU ARE SICK ENOUGHT TO BE PUT IN INTENSIVE CARE
Brunswick County Health Department may be offering the vaccine to pregnant women, however they should be telling the public the truth that they have no vaccines in stock!!!
What the heck is going on here? It's almost November and the vaccine has hardly rolled out to anyone, and no one is straight with us in D.C. Where is the leadership on this? Incredible. They're so caught up with the health care debate that they forgot about American's health! I'm really disappointed in the president. He should be showing leadership on this! People are dying!
sadly to so this story is about a young lady dying from the Swine Flu Virus.What in the h*** does it have to do with President Obama. Does he make the flu vaccines? No. Obama has done no more wrong than the presidents before him, except be a different color. So unless you can do something about keep your comments to yourself about him and deal with it for the next 3 years and couple of months. And if the Lord intend for you to get Swine flu or anything else with or without a vaccine,guess what you will. I guess that will be Obama's fault too.
he NEVER HAD any leadership..he just follows what the prompter and those that surround him TELL him to do...he's a PUPPET...unfortunately for the socialists...
