Probably the wrong place for this but... swine flu vaccine in pregnancy

Hi, I have to admit to have not really given swine flu a thought until the past few weeks where everytime I turn the news on, there is a report about swine flu. Particularly regarding swine flu and pregnancy.
The papers / news readers seem to be reporting that swine flu in pregnancy is very dangerous, though I imagine any type of flu is when pregnant. The report on BBC news the other morning had somebody urging "vulnerable" or pregnant women to book in for the swine flu vaccine.
I have had a few midwife appointments, I'm 19 weeks pregnant, and not once has the swine flu vaccine been talked about.
Is it something that pregnant women should be getting?
