I was asked 2day @ my appointment whether or not I wanted to give my child the H1N1 vaccine today...and I said that I wanted go do some more research before making a decision... any advice or concerns?

I had the same concern and I decided against it.. I've never had a flu shot and I've been fine. My daughter is 3 in great health. I was told by her pediatrician, whatever I've been doing thus far to continue doing it(she hasn't been getting sick). And that is prayer!! :)

Both my boys (age 1 and 4) have had it. My husband works for the company who produces it, and has read all the research on it backwards and forwards. If it wasn't safe, it wouldn't have been approved. I work in a school and have seen how the flu has wiped out almost entire classrooms. If having the shot can help protect my boys from that, I was all for it!
