Flu Shot???

Hello everyone!

Everything seems to be going well and progressing nicely with the baby...whoo hoo!!!

I was wondering how people feel about flu shots. In general and for preganant women.

I have personally never gotten one. I'm not sure why...I guess I just didn't feel the need to. Now that I am pregnant, however, I am reading a bunch of things on how pregnant women should get it because they are higher risk.

My daughter usually does not receive a flu shot either and both of us have been just fine over the years. I don't normally like to buy into the hype just because someone says I need something.

So, I was just wondering what the general consensus was on flu shots, especially for pregnant women, infants, and young children.
