Will your Baby be getting a flu shot this year?

Just curious if anyone isn't getting their baby a flu shot, and if so why? This is my first baby and the doctor said at her last appointment they would give a flu shot if I wanted at her next appointment. Have there been any issues with flu shots?? I know that personally, they always make me sick.

No, the only person who gets the flu shot in our family is my husband and that's because he's not given a choice since he's in the army.

Mine won't be.  My husband insists on getting his but he's the only one who will. 

He was the only one who did last year and he was the ONLY person in the house to get the flu.  

I was pregnant last year and my midwife knew I didn't want the shot so she told me to take Elderberry syrup.   I did then and will again.  

Doctors might push the shot but it's completely up to you to take it or not.

More than likely not. I got it last year just to protect the baby when she was an infant. No one in our house will be getting it.
