My daughter is seven and has child hood asthma. She has only had a few asthma attacks, but does have a lot of complications to the common cold. I was so against this H1N1 vaccine until my 14yr old nephew came down w/it. He is so very sick, and he does not have any underlying health issues.. It is hard for him to breathe and he has severe chest pain. He is on medicine for the pain, and was in the hospital for breathing treatments. He is now at home with an inhaler, but still very sick. This has made me question my decision, and make me wonder "Should I have my daughter get the H1N1 vaccine?" I really am torn about this b/c all the research I do just makes me more confused. Everything is so contradicting. Some docs say yes get it, and some say no. My daughters doc did say yes, but who do you listen to... I am so afraid if I take her in to get this shot that something far worse that the flu can happen to her... But then I think If i don't get the shot she could come down w/this flu and be suffering like my nephew or even worse. I realize this is my decision, but I would greatly appreciate some advice..
