I just read that too. It's so scary - especially the bit that we're 4 times more likely to get complications with Swine Flu. I've decided not to get the vaccine, but will take Relenza at this stage of pregnancy if needed as my baby is fully formed, adn the risk with that is skeletal admoralities.

Morning girls. My Doctor is not recommending the vaccine as she said it is not tested enough and you can be a lot sicker after the vaccine than with the flu itself. Think I will just lock myself away for the next 7 months.

My doctor has never mentioned the vaccine and im 25 almost 26 weeks pregnant. Are most doctors recommending getting it?

I don't think the doctors know enough about it. I was with my GP on Monday. I'm only 6 weeks. He wasn't of much help. I think because they don't know enough about it they aren't saying much.
