In brief: Flu shot is safe
Breastfeeding women, who have had no problems with prior vaccinations, should get the annual flu shot.
The vaccine helps prevent the women from catching the flu and bringing it home to their babies. Babies cannot get their first flu shot until 6 months of age (their second flu shot is a month after their first shot).
