Four shots: New this week, some health officials say children under the age of 9 who have never had a flu shot will need four shots. This includes two seasonal flu shots and two H1N1 shots.
Why would anyone say you would need 4 flu shots?

Personally, I asked my child's Dr. about the H1N1 vax and she said that she wasn't sure about it. She has children and I would think that if she felt it was in our best interest she would be telling me the positives about it. Not a word was said but that she 'wasn't sure about that one either' (after telling her that I wasn't sure I was even interested in that since I hadn't heard anything but negatives about it).
Also, I don't have a link or a source, but other CM's have posted that the Vax makers won't even take it (that's a bad sign). I wouldn't eat at a restaurant that the owner wouldn't dine at.

Well, considering that I am a SAHM and my kids are NOT in school yet, will NOT get any shots. I have rarely ever gotten the flu shot, one year I decided to and got really really sick. When I don't get a shot, I might get the sniffles but that is about it. So no I will not get a shot nor have I ever gotten flu shots for my kids. The other thing is there is sooooooooooooooooo much hype about it, that it really bothers me, and I don't trust anything with that much hype. As well as it is a new vaccine and I am not going to take that chance with my kids.
