Is anyone getting H1N1 Vaccine?

I was just wondering if any of you expecting moms are getting the H1N1 Vaccine. I just found out I am pregnant with my 2nd! I don't usually get a flu vaccine, but I am not sure since this is a different circumstance. I am not sure because it was manufactured so fast.

  • I'm 18 weeks pregnant and wouldn't even consider it.  It says right on the package insert that the vaccine has not been tested on pregnant women, or the affect it could have on your baby, read for yourself:  http://www.fda.gov/downloads/biologicsbloodvaccines/vaccines/approvedproducts/ucm182404.pdf
