Hi! I really just want everyones opinion on to get the vaccine or not for our children... I have been researching somewhat over the past few months and haven't come to a decision. My pediatrician called today and they got the vaccine so now i need to make a decision. My husband seems to be for it, as is our doctor but i am just a bit skeptical. I never got a flu shot in my entire life, and i have never had a bad flu, always very minor. She is a completly healthy 13 month old girl and i don't like the thought of putting her at any risk. It's kind of like your damned if you do damned if you don't. I guess I'm leaning more towards getting it because i couldn't live with myself if she got really sick and i could have prevented it. I don't know, as you can see i'm really struggling with this.
