Flu Shot Scare

I was given a flu shot before I knew I was pregnant - it was administered about 5-7 days after conception.  I can't find any information on getting a flu shot so early in the first trimester.  Should I be worried?  Please help - I am a wreck thinking about it.

Don't be worried...it's recommended that pregnant women receive a flu shot anyway.

Yep.  I am getting one as I am trying to get pregnant, and my Dr. was quite adamant that I get one.  They also give them to infants.  No reason to worry!!  Congrats on your pregnancy!!
