should i have the swine flu vaccine i am 37 weeks pregnant?
im 37 weeks pregnant and healthy, should i have the swine flu vaccine? i don't get the flu vaccine any other time. has anyone else had it?

I believe the vaccine are those who show symptoms and/or over 65years old. If you are perfectly healthy, then there is no need to get one.

Talk to your GP if you really feel you need to get one because of your baby.

No and No.

The planet is on red alert over the outbreak in Ukraine which hundreds of scientists saying that history is repeating itself (referring to 1918 pandemic). This strain is believed to be a dangerously mutated strain of swine flu. Scientists say that this new strain could spread across the planet in as little as a month. Be prepared for the worse. if you have any plans in place for an emergency health situation, activate it now.

I WOULD NOT recommend the flu shot to anyone. Those vaccines are poision they have mercury in them. Mercury is a poison and there has been cases where people have develop neurological diseases that can never be cured just because of simple flu shot or have become paralysed from it.

The only reason I am not getting it is because a four year old near my area took the vaccine and a week later (maybe right after), she got sick. Her mother took her to the doctor and the doctor said that it was just oral. She was still sick, so her mother took her to the doctor again and the doctor once again said that it was oral. Her mother wasn't satisfied with this so she took her to the Harrisburg hospital and she had apparently had 2 strokes and 2 mini-strokes. Now, she can't breathe, walk or talk and she hasn't smiled for a month.

It's a very personal choice. I'm 36 weeks and am not going to have it. It's been rushed and not thoroughly tested, they think it's safe but that's not good enough for me. If anything happens to me, they can get my son out quickly.

I'm following all the advice about hygiene, avoiding crowded areas etc and hoping I don't catch it! Speak to your doctor, and keep up to date on the internet. But it speaks volumes to me that 60% of doctors don't want to have the jab even though it's free and they're in the priority group.

My family Doctor told me not to get it and that goes for the rest of my family aswell.

Yes, the injectable h1n1 vaccine is recommended for pregnant women because pregnant women are 5 times more likely to die from complications of h1n1 than the general population. It will protect you and your baby (antibodies you make will benefit your baby).

Women delivering during influenza season should also get seasonal flu vaccine (this is not a new recommendation) to protect themselves and their babies. (Babies under six months old are not eligible for the vaccine.)

Both vaccines are safe and effective for pregnant women.

Best wishes.

It's up to you, but doctors advise your group and people who have underlying medical conditions to get it. When you're pregnant, your immune system is taxed, so you're more likely to be hospitalized if you get swine flu cause your body may not be able to fight it off as quickly and you can secondary complications like pnuemonia. So if I were you, I would rather be safe than sorry, but again, it's totally up to you. Congrats on your upcoming baby.

Please don't. I am attatching a link, the statistics are staggering. Since the vaccine's introduction, there have been hundreds of miscarriages due to this virtually untested vaccine.

It really is better to consult with your GP or Practise nurse, although well intentioned answers on here can be misleading and sometimes totally wrong.

It's recommended especially for pregnant women, because H1N1 has a high rate of serious complications for pregnant women. It's not quite as mundane a disease as typical flu. But if you aren't paranoid about vaccinations there is good reason for you to get this one. (Also, if you get vaccinated, you'll pass your antibodies along to your baby which will help protect it after birth.)

Odile, you wrote, "Both vaccines are safe and effective for pregnant women."

That's not what the vaccine manufacturers say in the vaccine package inserts.


"Safety and effectiveness of Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine have not been established in pregnant women, nursing mothers, and children." (page 1)

"Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine or FLULAVAL. It is also not known whether these vaccines can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity." (page 8)

All the brands say the same thing. Here's a link to the package inserts for the other brands of H1N1 vaccine.

And for all the brands of the seasonal flu vaccine:

If it's any help, on the sheet we received yesterday, with an invitation to take this up, it says

"The groups of people who are most vulnerable to serious illness as a result of swine flu are being offered the vaccine first. Based on the current evidence (from the UK and elsewhere), the highest rates for severe disease are in:
1. People with underlying health conditions and
2. Pregnant women."

Like us, I guess you have to make your own mind up, by being informed ................ good luck!!!

Still thinking about this.
