Moms with Teens Moms with Teens

 Hey mom's so I was wondering how many of you chose to have your child given this series of shots?

Boys? Girls?

What do you think?

Both of my older sons, ages 13 and 11 will be getting the first one today :)

EDIT: Mom's who chose not to get the shot's...I am not trying to be rude by responding :) thanks for sharing...it is your choice and I have no right to question it :)

Just fyi they do burn and they make you wait 15 minutes after the shot to make sure there is no reaction. Ds said it hurt like tetanus shot the next day and his arm was kind of stiff. But no adverse side effects.

 I have no idea if I responded to this before or not, but I'm going to go ahead and respond.  No, my children will not get this shot.  The main reason is because of the side effects, both short term and long term.  I talked to my children's doctor and even he told me he is not getting his children vaccinated with it.  Mainly because it has not been around long enough for anyone to honestly know the long term effects to it.  In the long run it is not worth the risk to me for my children.

My son is not getting that one. After talking to 2 doctors and asking if they are getting it for their teens and the said NO. I'm not getting it for mine.

I am pro-vaccinating but not this one. If doctors aren't doing it then there's a reason.

No, RN here who has done lots of research myself and spoken to many doctors who chose not to vaccinate their own children. For my 15 year old dd and 20 year old DS no.
