  • wat do you mean they are doing h1n1? I suppose you mean giving the shot for it.....I feel its still too experimental however my pediatrician is all for it and i do trust her...My daughter went to the dr this moning and they said she most likely had h1n1 but they weren't flu testing anymore because the test is missing a lot....shes only 9 months old but so far she seems to be handling it fine just cranky and drowsy.

  • As soon as our pediatrician's office gets the vaccines in, my kids are getting both. I'm not allowing them to get either in the school.

  • I'm a pediatric nurse. I would get it and I'd give it to my LO if I had a LO. I only have an 18 year old and he's afraid of shots, lol....I'm trying to get the nasal spray for him.
    I work in a daycare. The shot is the same type of shot as any other flu shot. It's made the same way. I bet that next year it will be part of the seasonal flu shot (which is generally made of 2 or 3 "expected" strains of virus). I would get it. Besides protecting your child, it helps the community because one less person is going to be spreading it around. Feel free to PM if you want.
