My daughter is getting the Flu shot but probably not the swine flu shot. If an outbreak happens just keep your child home. People act differently to the flu shot. Some feel tired some feel sick but really nothing to serious happens. Only a small amount of cases have bad things happen
You can also request a FLu shot withoutThimerosal. That is the form of mercury they use in preservatives. It is only in trace amounts. If you are worried about it tho you can request it without it in the shot.
The flu shot is the ONLY shot that still may contain the trace amounts of it. The CDC does in fact recommend flu shots for families.
There is an article in Parents magazine the November 2009 issue
