It is a respiratory infection that is very serious in preemies, and children with heart defects. If your child fits the catagory get the shot. It is given duing the flu season. Each shot is mixed in the pedi office, takes about 20 min for it to be mixed and ready for injection. It is only good for 30 days protection. Each shot is very expensive. My son's was 3150.00 a piece, and the doctor only charged for the nurse injecting. This is the drug company hiking the cost. Wonder if the national health care bill will cover it.
