Getting the flu is dangerous for pregnant moms -- but there's virtually *no* risk in getting a flu shot.
That's the conclusion of a study published this week in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Researchers found *no* evidence the influenza vaccine increased the risk of fetal death in pregnant women.
The study came about after many pregnant moms expressed concerns over taking the vaccine during the 2009 H-1-N-1 pandemic.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and prevention, during the 2011-2012 flu season, only 47 percent of expecting mothers opted to get the vaccine.
