The nasal mist vaccine is available for free to many kids in my community next week. 90% of the children in my community qualify, and of those the papers are reporting that 75% will be receiving it, including nearly all of the children my kids have regular contact with at playgroups and storytimes.
I'm concerned that with nearly 70% of the families around us getting a vaccine that will shed the live virus, there's going to be a no way to keep from getting exposed! Should we just hole up in our house for two weeks?!

I've been reading on here all I can on other moms opinions about getting the vax. Thankyou for posting this! I didn't realize people would be "shedding" the virus! Can I ask though, why aren't you getting the vax? I keep seeing moms say that it's bad and they aren't going to get it but I don't know why. When I google it, every website makes the vax sound like a miracle or something.
