Unlike the swine flu vaccine used in 1976, flu vaccines in the last decades of the twentieth century and early 2000s have shown no association with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) in children.
Group beta streptococcus (GBS): Pregnant women diagnosed with GBS late in the pregnancy should be treated with antibiotics injected intravenously to prevent premature labor.
If transmission of GBS to the newborn infant already is suspected or if the baby develops symptoms of infection, infants often are treated with antibiotics.
A pregnant woman who has GBS infection can develop infections of the bladder, blood, and urinary tract, and deliver a baby who is infected or stillborn.
Newborns who are exposed to GBS, however, can develop serious complications such as meningitis, pneumonia, blindness, deafness, and death is possible.
If a woman is found to be infected with GBS, physicians generally administer antibiotics to the mother so the baby is not born with the infection.
More than 13 percent of babies who develop GBS infection during birth or within the first few months of life develop neurological disorders.
Pregnant women should be screened for GBS during the last weeks of pregnancy to help ensure that GBS does not infect their newborns.

In 2003, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued revised guidelines for preventing perinatal GBS disease.
