Did anyone's child have this shot? It's a monthly preventative shot to prevent RSV. It outs antibodies into his lungs so that he can't get infection. It's usually only covered by insurance and recommended for preemie babies and those with respiratory conditions. My son is completely healthy, but since he was in the NICU and his pediatrician recommended it, our insurance is covering it 100%! The shot is usually between $900-$1500 each month, so I feel pretty lucky that they're covering it. Everything I've read said that there are no risks and I heard the same thing from two Dr.'s. Just wondering if anyone has any experiences with this shot?
