  • About 43 percent of the U.S. population, or nearly 131 million people, got a flu shot in 2010, despite their limited effectiveness and lack of supporting data

  • More pregnant women were vaccinated in 2010 than ever before, and about half of them received a flu shot. However, new research suggests flu vaccination could prompt an inflammatory response in pregnant women that could lead to adverse outcomes

  • No one is exempt from the potential serious complications of vaccination, one of which is Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), an autoimmune disorder that develops when a person's own immune system attacks and damages the myelin sheath of the body's nerves, causing muscle weakness and paralysis
