So so so so not a debate. Im not sure how much merrit this article has, but interesting not the less. I normaly dont get it, and wont when im pregnant. I personally know woman who have had losses because of the flu, so like most situations you have to weigh your options.
I just realized the other day that the flu shot I got here at work was one that contained mercury! I am sooo mad at myself. I honestly didn't even think to check first. It was in the first week of October and my Dr kept telling me to get one, but never mentioned the mercury thing. I have been resisting the urge to google the side effects, there is nothing I can do now, right? Ugh, I would never forgive myself if it hurt my baby in some way. Should I be worried??
I read through the links that provide the proof. They appear to count all miscarriages that occurred in the first trimester to vaccinated women to be correlated with the vaccination. The first trimester miscarriage rate is high anyway. I think it is an interesting article that had potential, but they need to do a better statistical analysis before I will put any stock in it.

I'm not even going to read the article. I was told the mercury one is safe. It's what I got. Last year they said to get adjunct=free (mercury-free) for pregnant women but this year, they found out the mercury one is just fine.
