I also will NOT be getting the flu shot, but have an interesting story to share... I'm recovering from pneumonia and after the first few days of the nasty cough, I went into a local internist (DH sees one of the drs in the practice) because it was close and I knew I could get in and was SURE I had bronchitis...I was 5 weeks PG at this point. The dr. I saw said I had a bronchiospasm sent me home with a script for albuterol and that was all (I knew it was getting to be something more). She pushed about the flu vaccine since I was pregnant and I just thought she was complete idiot for pushing me at 5 weeks pregnant AND lowered immunity due to sick which a week later I was diagnosed with pneumonia. I just said to her that I didn't want to get it that day and that was it. I felt like she was judging me.
But, for any of you who DO choose to get the shot, I just encourage you if it's at all possible to receive it from an actual doctors office because those facilities are the ones required to report side effects to CDC...the pharmacies (CVS, Walgreens, etc) or small clinics aren't necessarily required to report to the CDC...therefore, since that's where A LOT of people get the flu shots, there is an under reporting of side effects.
BTW, this is all information from my son's doctor who's on the homeopathic end and thinks the flu shot is a crock of crap. :) But, please just educate yourselves and make the best decision for you and your families!
