  • No, you didn't do anything wrong. It is recommended that pregnant women get a flu shot.

  • I went to get mine and I'm pregnant. The doc said it's a GOOD reason to get the flu shot and it is totally safe

  • As long as it isn't a live vaccine, you're actually supposed to get one while you're pregnant. I wouldn't worry about it.
