Against the flu this year?
Nope. We both got the flu last year and it wasn't even a strain that was included in the vaccine. The vaccine makes me feel like shit anyway.
No. We don't vax at all anymore
No, flu shots here. But really it only could prevent one or a couple but there are tons of different ones out there.
No, we do everything but flu and HPV as well.
I don't vax. I did once. When my dd was 2 months old I got her all her shots on time. That night she stopped breathing. I went to check on her and she was blue in her crib. Lethargic. I called 911. I gave her CPR (I had training from being in the army) and was able to resusitate her. She spent 2 weeks on a ventilator at Children's Hospital in Dallas. They told me after a ton of tests that they thought it was a reaction to one of the vaccines, specifically the pertussis part of the DTaP vaccine. She is 8 years old now and medically exempt.
My son is almost 6 months old and I will not vax him. Sometimes the shot can be more dangerous than the illness. At least, in my childrens case.
