I normally don't get flu vaccines, but was considering it this year b/c I am pregnant and a recent cold totally wiped me out. Well, I read on-line that you are not supposed to have any vaccines while you are on the medication I am taking (PTU, an anti-thyroid) as it suppresses your immune system (which may explain why that cold hit me so hard). I don't know if it is the same for those of you who are hypothyroid, but you may want to check to see whether vaccines are contraindicated with your meds.

TFS! I'll keep that in mind should I ever need a flu vax. I normally don't do that one but I am somewhat concerned about the whole swine flu/pg link so I thought I'd discuss it with my OB when I get pg again & just take his advice.
