TUESDAY, July 10 (HealthDay News) -- Although hastily created in response to the pandemic threat posed by the H1N1 flu virus, the vaccine for H1N1 is safe, even for expectant mothers and their babies, new studies show.

A Danish study that included more than 53,000 pregnant women, 13 percent of whom received the H1N1 vaccine, found no increased risk of major birth defects or pregnancy problems.

"We compared the vaccinated with the unvaccinated pregnancies with respect to a number of adverse events -- major birth defects, premature birth and fetal growth problems.

By mid-October, health officials had created and manufactured enough H1N1 vaccine to begin immunizing people at highest risk of complications and death from H1N1. By December 2009, the vaccine was widely available.

Pregnant women were among the high-priority groups, but safety data on the potential effects on fetuses were limited.

More than 2.4 million American women were vaccinated against H1N1, according to the study.

In the current study, no difference in birth weights was detected among babies whose moms got the H1N1 vaccine during pregnancy and no increase in major birth defects was apparent in babies up to 1 year, the aut
