Hi! Needing some opinions/advice on the swine flu vaccination. I received a letter from my GP saying that my 9month old daughter is being offered the vaccine as she is a high risk patient because of her age. The trouble is, I'm just not sure whether to let her have it or not. She is totally up2 date with her other vaccines, as I personally believe all children should be kept safe from disease that way (just my personal views, I knw not every1 feels the same, and I respect that), but I'm kinda dubious with the swine flu jab as its a brand new treatment n I'm not sure that there could have been all that much research into it as swine flu really hasnt been around for that long. Have any of u guys let your child have it? or does any1 know the latest information on it? Ive googled it, been on the nhs website and spoke 2 my mum and sister about it (my nieces have all had it) but I'm still undecided. I want my daughter to stay healthy and do whats best for her, but is allowing her 2 have the vaccine actually doing that? or is it just gonna make her ill? HELP!!
