  • My child gets severe severe asthma from first getting any kind of resp. symptom or illness, infection. I am scared to death of this shot and of the illness it's supposed to stop or lessen its' severity. To help her I'll have her take flovent daily as per her ped and zopenex with symptoms and pray pray pray.

  • There are lots of ways to nurse a child through a flu - H1N1 is not killing more than the normal annual influenzas do.

    PLUS, many health professionals are warning about dangers from the vaccine, and are refusing to take it themselves even when they are required to have it. They are that serious about the risks.

  • IF I was getting my child this shot (which I am NOT, Ive taught them good hygenine and that alone is a good preventive) I would understand that child with health issues need it more. Ive had to wait for my child to get the reg. flu shot when they were very short on them a few yrs back and I was fine with it. I would hate for some child with an immune system problem or something else not get something they need more than my healthy child.
