My 4 yr old's preschool requires the flu vaccine.
My kids have always gotten the regular flu shot, so it was never a problem.
They did not get the Swine Flu vaccine, based on my pediatrician's recommendation.
Now this year, I have found out (through my pediatrician) that the REGULAR Flu Vaccine is made up of 3 components - 2 for the anticipated regular flu strains, and 1 of the swine flu.
You can not find any flu vaccine that has been manufactured WITHOUT the swine flu vaccine. My pediatrician did not order it this year and does not recommend it.
(I trust his judgement).
My question is: what do I do about my son's preschool requirement? Would they give me a waiver since the swine flu is in this year's vaccine?
