  • Nope!! I don't believe in the flu vaccine. I got it for many years b/c I didn't know any better. I haven't had one in a few years and I haven't gotten sick like I have in the past. I don't want my LO to have anything unnecessary put into her body.

  • im 20 and i have never received a flu vaccine i did get my child the flu vaccine this year because we just moved 13 hours away from our home and they are having a out break. As for the swine flu it hasnt been studied enough i dont believe in putting things in my childs body if he doesnt need them but then again my child doesnt go to school and he isnt in a day care so his chances of getting it is slim

  • Nope. Hubby *can* get it for free, since he's an EMT, but he's refusing it. I'm not getting it. Our children are NOT getting it. The kids and I have never and will never have any sort of flu shot, period.
