  • Swine Flu Shot - NO. I did, however get the flu shot to protect my unborn child, and my 3 young children. My 5 year old will get the flu shot, my other 2 I'm not sure about since they stay home with mommy anyway, I just dont want them to catch something my 5 year old brings home from school.

  • Yes and if my son could get it he would but he has asthma and it's not recommended.

  • I've already gotten the regular flu shot. I work in a hospital & it's mandatory this year. I get it every year anyway. I'm a little nervous about the swine flu shot, but I think I'm going to get it anyway. I don't want to get the swine flu & end up giving it to my dd(4 months).

  • I got the seasonal flu shot for my 7 month old, we have not gotten the swine flu shot yet, but only because his doctor's office don't have it yet.

  • Havn't gotten the flu shot yet, but usually do every year. My kid got the flu mist. I wasn't going to give him the swine flu shot, but now it doesn't matter, b/c he's just getting over the swine flu!!! And me, i got the swine flu, then the regular flu. The regular flu was much worse than the swine flu for me.
