  • Nothing we vaccinate for will protect us from swine flu so that's kind of besides the point, right?

  • Last fall's flu vaccine won't help with this one. I vax, but don't do flu vaccines. I wouldn't be vaxing for this one either, if it was an option.

  • As far as I know, I got al my childhood vaccinations except for the one for whooping cough. Severe allergic reaction to that one. I don't remember getting any boosters, though... so maybe not.

    Nobody in my house gets any shots now. No flu shots, no nothing. My oldest get a tetanus shot a few months ago after a dog bite, but that's about it.

    And no, I'm no more concerned than before. There's no vaccine for the disease....there was one when they had a small outbreak back in the 70's, but they shut it down because of a high # of adverse reactions.... so those that vax & those that do not are in the same boat on this one.

  • At 4 you are suppose to repeat a set of shots. and again at 12 years. Then tetnus is every 7- 10 years. and a set of shots before college is recom also. I noticed a few months ago posters @ my kids doctor also saying this.

  • My kids had reactions to thier vaccines. I no longer vaccinate. I was vaccinated and now have many health issues. Do some biology research. This has nothing to do with that.

  • Anon :00 stop yelling at people. And just be thankfull that since you believe vaccines work you have no reason to worry about all the "selfish" moms that want their children to die.
