Are you getting your kids the flu vaccine?

I started doing this a few years ago, this year we get to do the nose mist. Just curious as to how many parents do this for their children.

  • no the flu vaccine is the only vaccine we dont do. My daughter hardly ever gets sick and when she does it goes away very quickly.

  • He will get the H1N1 booster, but I'm not sure about the regular flu shot. He'll probably get it just since he's in day care and exposed to other kids but I've never had a flu shot and have only had the flu twice in my life.

  • jessicarae the H1N1 is in the regular flu shot this year, i'm not even sure they will have it by itself.

    We don't get the mist here, the mist has the live virus, we always get the shot which does not have a live virus.

  • MomtoJack, thanks for sharing that with me. I didn't know and will be sure to ask their Doctor tomorrow about that before we get it.
