  • New research points out that it has NEVER been adequately tested for the effect on the fetus, and is DIRECTLY attributed to fetal deaths. Google "Fetal Death Linked To Flu Vaccine". You'll find info on all of the government websites.

  • It's recommended for all pregnant women.

  • Flu shots are not tested in pregnant women. They have unregulated levels of thimerosal, a mercury containing preservative.

  • Yes. I got both flu shots last year when I was 4 months pregnant. Some people take the vaccine thing waay too far.
