Yes & no: "everyone" agrees that women who are pregnant during flu season should get attenuated flu shot (not nasal spray): http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/influenza/an00651. However, there's a bit more conflict re Pneumovax in pregnancy but it appears to be safe to lower risk of pneumonia: http://goo.Gl/uemcgp & http://goo.Gl/1k45v. Talk to your OB & family doc for their opinions. In general very safe. ...Read more
