  • DH and I got the flu shot this year but somehow it worked out that the kids did not get theirs. I was a little worried about the H1N1 vax in there.

    Anyway, 1 kid got the flu. DH and I are fine. The other kids did not get the flu. Who knows how and why they didn't.

    When I was at the doctors with the sick one, the doc said they are seeing just as many kids who had the flu shot get the flu this year.

  • we got the shot this year. We got a very mild case of the flu. Dr. called "mock flu" We all also got very sick almost the day after we were given the shot. I was only sick for an evening this kids 1 -3 days. Unlike last year...hubby out of work unpaid 1 dh was out of school 9 days. It was in my house for 2 weeks or 3 weeks last year. I have to say the over the counter homeopathic medicine called oscillococcinum worked almost immediately (there are $2.00 of coupons on their another great one for knocking it out is oregano oil tablets.
