Funny,... I just talked with two wellness practitioners about this today. THE ONLY time I got sick from the flu was when I got a flu shot! LOL! Our bodies are MADE to be healthy! Unless someone has ongoing medical conditions that decrease their immunity, I would NOT recommend a flu shot. Taking good vitamins (ones that are actually absorbed), getting plenty of rest, and drinking plenty of fluids, the body will do naturally what it's made to do!!

I actually got the shot before I found out I was pregnant. If I hadn't already done so, I would have definitely done it for the safety and well being of my baby. Special times call for special measures
