  • I"m not sure if I'm going to get for my daughter(9 mos). I work at a hospital so I'm considered high risk. The flu shot is offered to me every year but I have never gotten it. I'm torn on what to do. Her doc says she should get it and so should I, especially if I plan on having any more kids. And a majority of my coworkers are getting it. What do you think? How old is your child?

  • I just got the kids there H1N1 shot. It is a flu shot just like the others, but is specific to this virus. So not worried and feel better knowing I have done all I can to protect or lessen flus they may get this year.

  • We did get it.

    But just so you know, they don't allow any kind of flue shot (not even seasonal) on infants.

    Does anyone know the age when they do start allowing it?
