In last week's KDHE flu report for Kansas, there were 101 outpatient visits for influenza-like illnesses.

Moreover, the benefits of getting a flu shot while pregnant certainly outweigh the minimal side effects.

"You can not get flu from the flu vaccine".

Repeating the message, "It's impossible for the flu vaccine to give you the flu", infectious disease expert Amesh A. Adalja, MD, senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, tells Yahoo Lifestyle.
