  • Yes. My thoughts are, the flu is deadly for kids. Vaccines are a good thing. Period.

  • No, my children are vaccine free. However, after reading a recent study on them, I don't understand why ANYONE would risk it!

  • Yes, I do get my kids the flu shots. My 12 yo who was a preemie had gone in twice to get his shot but been too sick each time to get it. Hopefully this time we can get it done.
