The local Dept of health is giving h1n1 vaccines at 6 yo ds' school. I was going to get him the shot, because it is a dead virus. Today I got a call from the school, and they now don't have the shot, only the nasal spray, which is a partially live virus with the risk of actually making kids sick. I have a baby at home, and no vaccine is available to him. Now I don't know what to do. By giving all of these children a live virus, I feel like they are putting the rest of the population, including my 9 month old at higher risk. When there is no vaccine available for these people, I feel it is irresponsible to purposefully introduce this live virus to the school population. I am not saying I know all there is to know about this vaccine. This is just how I feel with the info I have. I truly don't know what to do now. Do I give my son the nasal mist, knowing that all these other kids will have it so he's gonna be exposed anyway?
