Hrm. Well, it's a real journal and a real study. OTOH, that site is really, really biased. I'd want an immunologist to read the full text and give me their take on how meaningful it is.
As for Hep B: A lot of people are symptomless carriers. It's a problem in Asian-Americans (Hep B is endemic in some Asian countries, particularly China). The SF Health Department has run campaigns encouraging Hep B vaccination in the Asian community because of familial transmission.
I had a flu shot at 36 weeks. Baby won't be able to get one (flu shots may not even be effective in under-2s, I've seen conflicting advice). Baby may get some protection from me this way. I have a preschooler, so she just brings every germ home.
