Flu Shot during Pregnancy? Can I tell my doctor No?

I was looking on my chart for my upcoming appointments and I saw that it said Flu Shot due 8/24/15.
I have 2 other children and when I was pregnant with them my other Obgyn never mentioned a Flu Shot nor gave it to me.
Is this something new?
Do I have to get the Flu Shot or can I refuse?

You can refuse it. I never got it with any of my pregnancies but now that I work in a hospital and work with babies and moms k either have to get the shot or wear a mask from October first to the end of May... I will be getting it along with the tdap booster shot.

You can refuse anything. I'm a delayed vaxer but I think the flu shot is important because it also protects baby for the first 6 months of their life as well...the flu can get pretty serious..I work in the medical field so like the other PP I have to wear a mask if I opt out of the flu shot.
