"As with other vaccines, the FDA product labeling for the use of influenza vaccine in pregnancy is on the basis of precaution, and is not based on evidence."
FYI, the progesterone I inject every day (without which I would surely lose my pregnancy), has the same sort of warning.

Summary from the CDC -
CDC - Seasonal Influenza (Flu) - Q & A: Seasonal Flu Vaccine Safety and Pregnant Women "Pregnant women have a higher risk for serious complications from influenza than non-pregnant women of reproductive age. Influenza vaccine will protect pregnant women, their unborn babies, and protect the baby after birth."

Adverse events in pregnant women followi... [Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2011] - PubMed - NCBI "No unusual patterns of pregnancy complications or fetal outcomes were observed in the VAERS reports of pregnant women after the administration of TIV or LAIV"

Trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine and s... [Obstet Gynecol. 2013] - PubMed - NCBI "There was no statistically significant increase in the risk of pregnancy loss in the 4 weeks after seasonal inactivated influenza vaccination."

If anyone has a doctor who doesn't believe in vaccinations, I strongly suggest you find a new doctor.
