Flu vaccines have not been proven safe for pregnant mothers and their babies

“Flu shots are a safe way to protect the mother and her unborn child from serious illness and complications of flu. The flu shot has been given to millions of pregnant women over many years. Flu shots have not been shown to harm pregnant women or their babies. It is very important for pregnant women to get the flu shot.”

— CDC

 

“Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Fluzone (flu vaccine). It is also not known whether Fluzone can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity.”

— Sanofi Pasteur, manufacturer of Fluzone
