Swine Flu Vaccine: Is Your Toddler Getting One?
The 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.'"
