I have a soon to be 3 year old toddler, he is currently attending Daycare and has been getting back to back colds since he started. I'm seriously considering taking him to get the flu shot to prevent him from catching one of those dangerous flu strains going around. However, with so many articles warning parents about the dangers of giving kids vaccinations and some doubting the efficacy of the flu shot, I can't help but to be a little scared. Some articles even claim that the flu shot has killed some children, or given them the flu.
Have any of you taken your child to get the flu shot and if so, what was your experience, did he/she have any reactions, side effects, good or bad outcomes from it?
