  • I personally never get or have gotten the flu shot for myself or my kids. I wash my hands, eat healthy and rarely get sick so it seems unnecessary to me.

    Some people feel differently. I've known plenty of women who have gotten the flu shot when they're pregnant and everything has been just fine.

  • The shiots are not tested for pregnant women. I don't feel they are proven safe because no testing is done.

    I never get flu shots. I rarely get sick.

  • I don't get flu shots, pregnant or not. Our bodies have amazing immune systems when we let the function properly. The flu shot only protects against 1 or 2 strains of the flu, it puts your immune system under stress because it's not designed to gain immunity in this manner, and it introduces your body to some heavy toxins.

    Did you know that vitamin D can kill the flu virus? There has been plenty of suggestion that because we don't get sufficient sun during the winter is the reason the flu runs so rampant.

    My family doesn't get vaccinated and doesn't freak out about germs and we are the healthiest family I know.
