who is getting one and when? Our local department of health is offering free shots tomorrow and no one has directed me to get one yet, but i feel like i should take advantage of the offer.

I got mine back in like Sept.. I work for a Pediatrician so they really encourage us here to get one but I would have anyways once I became pregnant.

You may want to check with health department to make sure you dont need a note from OB saying its ok to get one since your pregnant.

I got one once because I didn't know I could opt out as a nurse...now I know I can and I haven't got one since. My provider told me not to get it while pregnant since it has mercury in it.... i'm not comfortable with that for me or baby (not trying to tell others what to do ).
My hubby got his in Oct.

Haven't - won't. I ended up brutally sick the one and only time I got one. Never again.

No, we don't do vaccines, so I won't be getting the flu shot. I just had the stomach flu, so I may be okay for the rest of the year anyway.

The only time I ever got the flu shot was when I was pregnant (I felt bullied into it by some family members and my doctor.) I don't think I'll be getting it this time around.

I got mine in Oct as well! My OBGYN recommends it b/c it has the swine flu vaccine in it this year. I guess I am in the minority b/c I am gung-ho for all vaccines for me, DH and the kids. I was super nervous last year when DD was too little for the flu shot and swine flu vaccine.

No shots for me either, or for my babies. My second son had a terrible reaction to a shot a couple years ago. Scared the crap out of me, and now no more vaxes.

Have not and will not. I tried to get the mercury free version that they supposedly have for pregnant women when I was pregnant with Matthew, but neither my workplace (hospital) or my OB knew anything about it so I just didn't get it.
