DS is 12 weeks and I am curious if I will want to get the flu shot before he is 6 months old. I did get it while I was pregnant early November of last year. Do I go ahead and get it or wait?

If you are into the whole flu shot thing, you will want to get another one. You baby is too young to get it and what you got least year is different. They change the flu shot each year for the different strain they think is going to go around.

I am in one of those high risk categories with my Asthma so I get a flu shot every year regardless.  I have had the flu when I was younger and didn't get the shots and I don't go without them now.  I guess it depends on wether you take it yearly or not.  I would just to be safe if I were you.

If you are ok with Flu Shots then go ahead, we are not ok with them(even supposedly high risk) & have never had any problems. We also eat healthy & bulk up on things like Vit c during cold season.

We don't vaccinate at all, here's a bump.
