Women who get allergy shots during pregnancy may be protecting their child from developing allergies.

Studies presented at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) show that allergies often run in families and children with allergic parents have a greater chance of developing them. But that chance as reduced when they got regular allergy shots before and during pregnancy.

Researchers caution that more studies are needed to confirm the results.
