Today is the scheduled date for the flu shots to be administered to employees and our dependents here in the office. I registered, and so are my two little girls. Unfortunately, yesterday, I was told by our company nurse that only kids 3 years old and above can take the vaccine. Hmmm. I wondered why? So, I made a quick research about flu shots for babies and toddlers and I've learned that shots are even recommended now for all children younger than 5. So, I'm really puzzled why my Baby Gab can't have the vaccine. Anyway, here's more about the safety of flu shots for babies and toddlers.
Now, since Baby Gaby can't have the vaccine, only me and my 5-year old Yana will have it. But just a while ago, our company nurse asked me if my OB is okay with the idea that I get a flu shot. I alread asked one OB almost a month ago about this and she said that flu shot is safe for pregnant women. But I don't know why I'm having second thoughts about it now. So, again, I made another research about safety of flu shots for pregnant women to be sure. Read here.
Still I'm having second thoughts. Should I or should I not?
