    We all have them every year, The benefits out weight the risks for us. Both A & I are in the high risk group for respiratory illness. The chances of us getting sick durning winter are pretty high.

    We've both already been admitted to hospital & winter hasn't struck yet.

    In some situations I can understand why people don't get the vax. They have good reasons for it.
    However, your reason is because someone you know, spoke to this head of the Australian Immunization something, who advised not to do it.
    But WHY did he/she advise against it?

    It's like saying: "I am getting married"
    "Dont do it! I know a person who has a mother who's sister got married to her best friend and they divorced a year later".
    "Oh ok, thanks for that. I wont get married".

    My decision of getting DS a flushot is based on different information and knowledge. I am going from personal experience, 5 years of studying biochemistry and an internship manufacturing vaccines with the Dutch CSIRO.

    Anyway, it's good to know I'm not the only (bad) mother out there getting their toddler a flu shot

    Fair enough

    I've never been advised to give him a flu shot to help
    But if you were advised to get him one as it could be beneficial for him, would you consider it at all?

    after what happened here in perth (children and babies had convulsions, went into comas and there was also deaths linked directly and confirmed by the coroner with the flu shot) there is no way i would even consider it.

    the chief health officer of the commonwealth of australia suspended the shots, then recommends them only after the age of 5 for children with pre-existing conditions.

    There are 2 different vax's one is called flu vax. I can't remember the ne of the other & the strains in both change each year.

    Flu vax brand is the one that had issues.
