|Spaggie||Rick has to get it since he works at a hospital (it's free), but he still brings crud home. But Kimmer is right, if you get a strain that isn't covered by your shot, you are our of luck! But I figure better safe than sorry. And both of mine have gotten them since they were about 1 or 2.|

Nope. My kids aren't getting it. They didn't have one last year and they didn't get any sicker than they did the year before. Also, the shots don't help if you get a strain of flu that isn't covered by the vaccine.
I only get mine because of all the crap I am exposed to at work... yeesh!

I get it for the kids because it seems to run thru the school like wildfire here. Ally is at the 2nd smallest elementary in the district - someone gets something, it seems like half the school ends up with it. Neither of mine have ever had the flu, tho.
On another note, took Drew in to the Dr. Monday and got my flu shot while I was there. An hour later my upper arm was on fire, couldn't move it. Then my shoulder got tight. Then my neck. Next came a world class head ache. Which lead to the world's worst earache! Rick ended up having to stay home yesterday to get Ally off to school becasue I had been up all night. Weirest thing ever! I've never had that happen before! Ear is still bothering me today and my arm is still hot!

|DQKaren||All 4 of mine got the flu shot (the little 3 need a 2nd dose) 2 weeks ago. No problems here yet.|

|Grace||My dd is allergic to eggs and swelled up like a balloon. Unless your baby has an egg allergy, he probably won't have this reaction.|

SO I just got my flu shot and was told they do have infant flu shots for babies 6+ months.
Is it a good idea to get Jerren a flu shot?
Who's gotten their LO a Flu shot? Any adverse reactions?
