Did you get or will you get a flu shot while pregnant?


I never get it when not pregnant, I'm sure not getting it while pregnant.

 I opted out of getting one during this pregnancy.  The last time I got a flu shot was several years ago...I got the strain they vaccinated me for and I was so sick that I ended up in the ER.

I'm getting mine on Wednesday. MY OB said it was up to me, so I decided to stick with what works for me.

No, but only because I had a severe reaction to one about 5 years ago, now, I just hope every one around me stays away when they have the flu.  Oh, and I get slightly obsessive about hand washing and not getting coughed on for the duration.

I got it the day before delivery and the pneumonia and whooping cough vaccine while in the hospital

Never had and never will when I am pregnant. Period we don't get them.

Nope and nope. I don't get while I"m not pregnant, no reason to while I am pregnant.

I never get a flu shot at all, pregnant or not.

No and No

That goes for my entire family, but especially when pregnant!

Yes, I will. I'm immunocompromised and a prolonged, high fever could hurt the kiddo, so I'm totally in favor of getting it.
