  • they may, if you don't want it, be sure to tell them, and if you do want it, you can request it.

  • They will if you want them to... but if you don't want it then you need to tell them so.

  • Just tell them no, its not a big deal.

    I got my son the regular flu shot again this year...but refused the H1N1 shot, they didn't even bat an eyelash. lol

    Good Luck

  • You can say "no" to any vaccine you wish. They can not force it on you. If they try, just simply leave.

  • At our Peds, you have to sign for every vaccine so they have a record. Get if you want, don't if you don't.

    My husband and I got out seasonal and H1N1 on the same day, all out kids have had their first doses of h1n1 and all of their seasonal but no one forced us. Contrary, actually, we waited in line for two hours for their h1n1.

  • If you don't want them to, they can't do it - you have to approve of everything first, and if you say "no flu shot today" they can't do it - they can't force you to do it either - if you don't want to do it, don't let them talk you into it either! I say kudos to you for not wanting to do it, especially mixed with regular immunizations!
