I don't think so, but others would disagree with me. I am very careful about what I put in my body while pregnant.

In my opinion, no it is not safe.  I personally would not do it.

There is a certain type of flu vaccine for pregnant women just make sure they give you that one... Not sure about tetanus

It is safe, but you don't have to get them if you don't want to. I didn't get the flu shot.

I don't trust any vaccines. I definitely wouldn't get vaccines while pregnant.

Honestly, I don't believe they are safe, even when not pregnant. Look at the list of ingredients and research each ingredient- you'll probably never get a vaccination ever again.
