72 Children have died from the Swine Flu Virus. Is this makig you change your mind about giving them the vaccine?

Ok, So latest reports show that more children have died from the Swine flue in the past few months then from the regular flu all year? Is this making you change your mind about the vaccine? We have NEVER gotten a flu shot and I won't start doing it now and I won't be getting the swine flu shot either. But, the amount of children that are dying is starting to have me worried. Turns out children are more vulnerable to the swine flu then most adults or elderly people.

  • Yes, me and my son will be getting it. My doctor summed it up for me this way: "Your chances of having severe complications/death from the swine flu are very real, your chance of having complications from the shot are less than 1%."

  • No, still not getting it. My children have had swine flu and got through it fine - should have built up immunity.
