For the 5 millionth time, this is not a new type of vaccine! Every year the CDC finds out what strain of seasonal flu is going around and makes a vaccine for it. This in no different,only this year we have two strains seasonal and h1n1. There have been well over 100 deaths from h1n1 most have been healthy children, that is they had no chronic health conditions. I will gladly risk any complications from the vaccine which once again is produced in the same way as the seasonal flu shot, rather than risk death of my children who already have asthma.

Both of my kids got it. The 22 month old had the shot and my 4 year old had the mist. We all got a little cold after, but given that I didn't get the shot and we were in line outside in the cold and wet with a bunch of other young kids, I don't think it is from the vaccination. We all recovered easily and are fine now about 3 weeks later. We did it because this is a flu shot like all the rest. It was created the same way; so the risk are the same as any other flu shot. We felt it was worth it.
