Mumsnet hasn't checked the qualifications of anyone posting here. If you have medical concerns, please seek medical attention; if you think your problem could be acute, do so immediately. Even qualified doctors can't diagnose over the internet, so do bear that in mind when seeking or giving advice.
Work are offering the flu jab next week. However I am not sure if it is safe when pregnant (and can't ask occupational health as they don;t yet know about my pregnancy). Does anyone know if it is safe? Thanks.
Thanks all. I kept coming across confusing advice when I searched online so thought maybe some wise mumsnetters would have the definitive answer. I will call the nurse at my GP centre to see what she recommends.
If women are supposed to avoid certain types of fish because ofthe mercury potentially being hramful to their baby I am not really clear on why a mercury contianing jab should be considered safe. But maybe I am not up to date and mercury (thimerosal)has been removed from this particular vaccine.
