Hello, my son's pediatrician was upset when I chose not to give him the H1N1 shot. What are your opinions on that?! He technically was 6 months, but being a preemie he should've only been 2 and with his immune system not being up to par I felt as if it wasn't safe. He was tottally rude about it and when I went to the hospital to get blood work for him drawn the doctor there said I made a good choice. Not even a week later they said that the H1N1 they injected all babies 6mos- 3yrs weren't effective, so he is asking me again. I still say no but my mother-in-law says I should get more opinions since he is a special case with being premature. I have done some research and it says they still don't know any long term effects which scare me. What are your opinions?
