Pregnant women are considered to be in the high-risk group of those most vulnerable to getting the flu and are and the vaccine is generally advised, especially if you have an increased risk of pregnancy complications due to a medical condition. While some doctors may avoid administering a vaccine to a woman who is very early in her first trimester, it is generally thought to be safe to receive the vaccine at any point during pregnancy.

However, as with al medicines in pregnancy, I;d suggest speaking to your gynae first.
