Mass. is going to be signing a bill to make it a law that if there is a pandemic that they will force people to get the vaccines. Even law enforcements are able to give it to you.

I am not going to give my son the shot. I might and my husband will because he works with a lot of people...

I personally am not going to give it to my son, nor am I going to take it myself. So far I haven't really seen any evidence that this is such a horrific disease that we need to pump ourselves full of drugs that haven't even been fully tested.

I am quite nervous too. I'm not sure if he could receive it threw the breast milk because its injected into your muscle. I think that the swine flu vaccine would be helpful for your child because just in case your child gets the flu it could injure him. Maybe go as far as causing death. I don't really like vaccines myself because you never know if it will cause something crazy down the road. I would suggest reading more on it. Plus during the flu season I would have you and your family and anyone coming into contact with your baby, wash their hands really well. That is what we are taught in nursing school is the best defense in preventing the flu. Good luck.
