  • I have a 4 year old and a 2 year old this is the first year we have ever done a flu shot, I decided to do it. We just got it I got the shot they got the mist, no reactions etc The h1n1 shot isn't really easy to come by here yet so we'll see about that Im not sure if i'm doing that one yet

  • They're getting them both. Next year, the vaccine for H1N1 will be part of the regular flu shot.

  • My kids already got the seasonal flu shot but they are not getting the H1N1 vaccination. It is NOT because I made the decision to not protect my children against a potentionally deadly disease... its because they have already had the Swine Flu so they would not benefit from the vaccination at all! Had they not had the Swine Flu already, I would have gotten them the injection as well
