Does anyone have any feedback regarding the H1N1/Influenza combo vac for 15 month old?

This will be his first influenza vaccination. However I just found out that it is combined with the H1N1 strain. Does anyone have any information regarding this.

  • nope. i didnt do it this year for my dd. she got the flu shot last year and so did i. but i just didn't want it this year because they combined it. but my doctor said it was ok but i was going with my gut on this one. i am sure its fine but everyone makes their own decisions about it. i did not like that they combined it this year. good luck

    Australia has suspended the vaccine in children after injury to 22 children. Last Canada did the same.

    275 people have submitted letters of intent for injury from the H1N1 vaccine.

  • Everytime my husband gets the flu shot he gets very ill but, being in the military he has to get it. He currently has pneumonia from this years flu shot. Our children have never had the flu shot or pneumonia shot and they have never had either illness.

  • We don't ever get flu shots. Flu shots still contain Thimerisol. They are so unnecessary. The flu vaccine is more dangerous than the flu virus.

  • I think the vax is potentially more dangerous then the virus itself in healthy people. The vaxs are mixed with potentially unhealthy ingredients. I did not give my son his 15 month flu shot. Hes never had one. Neither have i or my DH.
