I would reccommend getting it. My 6 year old was just released from the hospital. She was admitted with the swine flu. Having her almost die because of the flu was terifying!! We are very careful with her wherever we go and she still got it. The problem is that people are contagious BEFORE they have any symptoms! Its scary out there!

I think if you are comfortable with it you should get it. Every person has the right to choose. i am just very nervous about it. In the 80's two very close family members had the shot and died from severe complications from it within two weeks of the shot. I have been to several drs to get opinions and almost all of the drs agree that because of the reactions to the flu shot that my kids have had, I should avoid the shot but be very careful, and I believe I am being very careful and respectful of others as far as if my kids are sick you wo't see them out and about! :)

We are not getting it mostly because two of my kids have had sever reactions to the regular flu shot and it makes me nervous. However I am very careful about taking my kids out and were we go. Every day I do a quick check making sure there is no fevers runny noses cough and so on and if they have any symptoms of anything we don't go any were no school no church notta. Long story short I think if you don't get the shot you need to be responsible and respectful about when your kids are ill.

The health officials are saying for as far as kids...the side effects are better than to risk the chance of your child getting the H1N1 virus. Last week 19 children died of it. Thats the total deaths they usually have at the end of flu season in May they said. Just something to think about!
