  • Not untill the second round comes out, I never trust the first round. Especially with a 9 month old, not worth the risk .

  • I am not, mainly for two reasons. I really don't like giving my children vaccines that are brand new and we don't really know the long term side affects. Also, h1n1 is already here and the vaccines are not. My kids most likely have already been exposed or will be shortly. All the school districts in the area have confirmed cases ( the one with over 250 cases). I feel like it is only a matter of time before we get it if we are going too.

  • We asked our doctor about vaccinating our 31 m/o for the H1N1 and were told that the clinic had decided NOT to even carry it because it was too early to know the adverse side effects. So we did not do it. Going with the dr. on this.

  • I'm still on the fence with this, but leaning toward not having them vaccinated.

  • Nope. Hopefully I don't get the shot, but I'm not sure what I'm going to do if the Navy decides we have to. I don't think I can say no...
