I have appointments for 4 of them to get them on the 16th, and the one who's WC is the same day will get his then (they are actually all going at once).
I make it a priority for my kids to get them. Two of them are asthmatic. I would LOVE one as the flu is hell on me (asthmatic) but I fall into the small % that can't have one.
I got mine last week. The kids are scheduled for them in a couple of weeks.
DH gets it (his choice), but I don't think my boys & I will. We didn't last year & had no problems.

Quoting Hafsa1:No. ds got one a couple years ago given by school and his temp jumped to almost 104 by the evening. Turns out he had strep throat (just the beginning, no signs yet) and the shot accelerated his symptoms.
His doctor (not the same as 2yrs ago) asked if he could get one this year while ds was there for a sick visit, I'm like what?!? No thank you, he's clearly sick and don't need that making it worse!
DH got his on a day when he wasn't feeling that great. I was rather irritated with him for doing that - he didn't even mention his tummy issues (which he'd had for 3-4 days by then) to the nurse who gave him the shot. Urghhh Thankfully it didn't seem to affect him.
Nope! I refuse to get one after I had one about kill me almost 15 years ago and my daughter is highly allergic to the ingredients in them!
Depends on the state and wether its a public or private school! If the school accepts any form of government funding they have to accept an exemption and the flu shot is not a requirement! Check your state laws or message me and I'll look into it for you!
Quoting DOllfACE-:My son's school is making it a requirement? I am kind of taken back by how much shots he "Has to" get by "Law"...He's only 5!
