Dr. James Ferguson
Pediatrics
In brief: Yes
Past experience with the killed (regular injected) flu vaccine has been good.
No specific pattern of problems influencing the fetus is known. Although considered safe during any stage of pregnancy, most recommend waiting until >14wks when he period of organ formation is completed out of caution. Influenza is a devastating illness to some in pregnancy, we lost 2 moms here 2 years ago (babies ok).
