by Tonzar Ristori, Lucia Maria

Abstract (Summary)
This is a descriptive and exploratory research with a qualitative approach, whose objectives are to describe what did the vaccine against rubella mean to women who have found themselves pregnant after having received the measles-rubella vaccine, during the 2001 's campaign against rubella, in the DIR XX from São João da Boa Vista (DIR XX); and to analyze how those women interpreted the orientation given during the campaign and during the antenatal examination, and how were they supported when facing the situation. The research occurred in the municipal districts under the control of DIR XX and the individual were women who were considered to be susceptible to rubella and became pregnant within 30 days after being vaccinated against it. It took part of the study, 18 women who lived in 10 different towns in the region. As the theoretical framework of the study, it was used the theory of social representation, technology in Health, and the clínic, epidemical and preventive aspects of rubella and congenital rubella syndrome. Data was gathered through recording semi-structured interviews, following a guideline script. The data was organized using the technique of the Collective Subject Speech proposed by Lefévre e Lefèvre, which unveiled two topics: I.The woman. The vaccination campaign against rubella. The antenatal care. II. The signification of the rubella vaccine (socially seem as a threat to the woman's physical integrity, as well as to their sons and to their conjugal relationship). The results suggest that the orientation process during the various phases of attention during the occasion has been unsatisfactorily standardized, fragmented, and, in several cases, improper and not qualified, and thus it does not allow the empowerment, and does not help women to experience the situation tranquilly. It can be observed health professionals technically unprepared to fulfill women with proper care; a lack of integration between services, which generates discontinuity and incapability of being properly attended, as well as the incapability to incorporate all technologies available to their care. It has been confirmed the importance of the social and professional networks to help women under this situation. Through their speech, women have unveiled their situation and the various meanings of by being vaccinated during pregnancy. It is a great challenge to supervisors and health professionals to produce care and to make available health procedures. The study is related to research lines - procedures to take care in health and nursing, thematic field - woman's health
