  • Nope and she won't get one until she's old enough to say, "Mom, I really want to get a flu shot this year. I've done my homework about it, I know the potential risks and the problems people in our family have had with them, but I want to see how it effects me." Or something like that. Flu shots have almost killed several people in our family over the past few years, and a few others a few decades ago. Plus, I've never met anyone that got a flu shot and didn't get sicker after the shot than without getting it. I don't see the point, just like I don't see the point in the chicken pox vaccine (I got chicken pox 3 or 4 times growing up, beginning before the shot, then when I got it, then once or twice after).
