Anyone getting Flu injection for their children?


[deleted account]

It's true that some children may experience side effects. Usually a very low grade fever or mild flu like symptoms - but absolutley nothing in comparision to actually getting the flu. I gave my son some infant advil the evening after the injection just in case the injection site was a little sore. He has always had the flu shot at the same time as other vaccinations.

My daughter is 2.5 and had always gotten them, with no problems. She's in day care, so I really want to protect her.

Great thanks, always worried about side effects etc. The nurse at my doc surgery has said they reccomended for children but some people have had concerns when i mentioned it.

Yes, ever since my son was old enough to get one. He never had any reactions to them and of course, I feel better knowing that is his protected from the flu. They get two shots the first time they get them and then the following years only need one.
