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.'"

we gave her the flu shot as we have done before but this one is just too new to try it,  i think it is unnecessary as she is only three.

I chose other.  My kids are fully vaccinated but we don't do the flu shot and won't do the h1n1 shot either.  I think the flu shot is pointless and have no urge to get the swine flu shot either.  My kids rarely ever get sick and have zero health problems.  If anyone is going to get sick it will be me and I don't get the shots either.  I just suck it up, lol.  I get the flu almost every single winter and my kids have never had it.  They never get more then a cold (runny/stuffy nose and cough).

i chose other and the reason is that my doc advised me not to. it is just not a good shot to be giving. he does not have it in his office at all.

Absolutely not.

Not in a million years.

No, I'm not getting it for either of my kids because the shot is too new and we don't know what the side effects are yet.  Not going to risk it.
