Flu Shot or not

Anyone else confused about all the info surrounding vaccines?  I am being told to get the flu shot but there is so much conflicting info out there.  Just wondering what other moms-to-be are choosing and why?  Just FYI I am 8 weeks and considered high risk (40 years old).

Re: Flu Shot or not

  • I know this is a few weeks old but just wanted to share. I had some of the same concerns regarding the flu shot but decided to get one as I looked up that it's much riskier to get the flu while pregnant than it is to get the flu shot. I had mine done early in the season (early October) and I'm 35 weeks tomorrow. (36 years old with complete placenta previa, possible placenta increta). Hope you see this and it helps.
  • Ive never gotten it before but I just got it a few weeks ago (27 weeks). I’m having twins and have vasa previa (high risk). Three doctors recommended it to me, as I’m havig twins and they will be born a bit premature. It goes to the babies a bit too so they will be protected a bit when they get here. They will be born beginning of January so its the height of flu season. Didnt want to risk anything. 
  • Highly recommend getting the flu shot. I got it while pregnant with my daughter around 8 or 9 weeks pregnant. She was born in perfect health. I was considered high risk due to severe pre-eclampsia.
