Probably been asked, but are you getting the FLU vax for your kids?

I am not getting it for my family for MANY reasons... but I am curious about others.

  • Yes, this is a very popular question...No, I do not get the seasonal flu shot for myself or my children, and am not doing the H1N1 vaccine either.

  • omg, someone got their children the nasal h1n1 vax? i hope they don't catch it or spread it! that's LIVE VIRUS vaccine!!
    ever wonder why oral polio vaccine was taken off the market in the united states? because it was a LIVE VIRUS and gave people polio.
    (sigh)
    we don't vaccinate, no flu vaxes here.

  • I'm pretty sure we are taking a pass on both the regular flu vax and the h1n1. I watched that Dr. Oz video that you posted on FB and it made me think that the h1n1 vax is a crock of $hit.
