According to this video, getting a flu shot when you're expecting may help your child stay healthy after birth.

I've been getting a flu shot every year since the 90s, think I've only missed maybe one year. Hadn't thought about it this year because it's just been so hectic, but will check with my OB. I've never gotten the flu, but then that's probably just luck since the shot doesn't protect against all strains.
