    I am a nurse and in the past have been the person giving the flu shots. It is supposed to be totally safe especially in 3rd trimester.. mine is due for the winter but not going to take it have not taken any drugs etc... at all through my pregnancy so not going to take an injection. I am sure it is perfectly safe but i am so not getting mine which will piss off my workplace but....
