  • My older 3 have never had flu shots. They are 8, 7 and 6. My youngest got one when she was like 8 months old but never got any more. She's 3.
    I don't see a point. I've never had a flu shot either and I've survived.
    Then again, my kids have never gotten the flu. They rarely get sick. The worst they get is a runny nose and cough.

  • When she was 8 or 9 (years, not months). We did selective vaccinations on a delayed schedule with single dose preservative free vaccines.

  • I think it was around 6-9 months ...

    I don't know if I had the flu shot when I was a baby, but I didn't get them when I was a kid, teen, or adult. I didn't get one when I was pregnant either.

  • He was 4, but he had to get one cuz we live with my terminally ill father and everyone here gets them because we are not taking any chances.

  • Never. My kids are 7 and 4. Their Dr. recommends it every year because they have asthma but I have yet to get it for them. My kids are healthy and are never down more than a couple of days with a cold.
