Syringes mixed up – wrong vaccination for young mother after childbirth

Protection for child
“This vaccination is given to protect the unborn child. Because if it is rhesus positive, the mother may develop antibodies and the antibodies can attack the red blood cells of the child, ”explains Dr. Thomas Fiedler from Linz, specialist group representative for gynecology and obstetrics at the Upper Austrian Medical Association. The rhesus syringe eliminates this risk. In mothers with a positive factor, the vaccination works against their own red blood cells, but the dose – according to Fiedler – is not dangerous.
