So I work in a nursing home and right now we are being hit and also in our community with influenza A. I have had the flu shot but so hasn't everyone else that has the confirmed diganois. I just feel that I'm bound to get and worry about my baby. Does anyone know how it effects the baby if I do happen to get it. I'm wearing a mask per my doctors suggestion but really is that going to help much. I don't know but worry about it.

Flu shots are safe. Just be certain to get the shot not the nasal one!
