I was thinking by now the flu would be slowing down. But today we all got letters from my sons preschool. They know the kids don't have school Wednesday. But they  want them to come in and get a flu mist in there nose.  He was going to get a flu shot but the day before he got very sick. And they ran out in our town.  I hope the mist goes ok. No really I hope they not dress like nurses much or he will freak out. And I think it different we don't go to clinic but we go to school. Anyone else have school doing this ?

Yeah my dh and I refuse the flu mist, my kids will NOT be getting it. I always make sure they get the shot though.

I just wanted say thank you for all of the advice. And you can get the shot.  My cp gets my mixed up on reading paper work. But his dad read it over and it mostly talked about the mist but he also read you can get a shot.
