H1N1 swine flu vaccineThe vaccine for swine flu or H1N1 is scheduled to arrive as early as tomorrow, Tuesday. As USA Today reports, "Kids under nine all require two doses of seasonal flu vaccine one month apart to get full protection the first time they are vaccinated, and the H1N1 vaccine adds two more shots. 'That means four pokes in a few months.'"

Other.  We vax, but not the flu shot or the H1N1.

I voted other. My daughter will not be getting the shot because she already had the Swine Flu.

Hell to the NO my kids will not be injected with this experimental CRAP! sorry, my kids are not government guinea pigs. Anyone who does this based only on their doctors recommendation really needs to do some independent research of their own.

My daughter is 18 months and she got the flu shot but she's not getting the h1n1 flu vaccine..  It's way too new and just don't know the side effects and she's so little.

I voted other. My son is severely allergic to eggs so he can't have it. I worry about him getting sick, so I'm pulling him out of preschool for awhile. I'm pregnant and don't want to risk getting it either.

No way! Neither of our kids are getting the swine flu shot. In fact, we don't vaccinate them at all.

We selectivly vax and we ABSOLUTELY dont do flu vaccines. Not seasonal, and for sure not this "media hype" flu.

Kudos to your ped nays4babys!

My sons got the shot and with in three days of getting they had spiked fevers of 103.4 and higher they are 2-1.  They are now being tested for the swine flu and I can only hope its nothing.

My daughter 8mons old was to get one today but I out right refuse to give it to her now.


My sons have the fever runny nose cough sore throat and my one son refuses to drink because it hurts so bad.
