I don't think it's too late but it would be later in the season. So it might be worth asking gp how long it takes to have immunity.
Its Me (15-05-2016)
I would think it isn't too late. Some places have only just got the vaccine in.
My DD has had the flu vaccine since she could. .. under 12 months 2 separate injections but after that they are usually fine to get it. We only had ours done 2 weeks ago.
My daughter had it last year when she was 6 months and again this year at 18 months. No side effects at all.
I had dd vaccinated once and she got really sick that night, very high fever etc. Which landed her in urgent care. So have never gotten the kids vax'd since. I have to have it for work though.
DS2 (3.5) had his yesterday - later than we wanted but he has had a cold. Anyway no side effects, no temp - business as usual!
Hmmm...it is such a personal decision hey.
My boy doesn't go to daycare or anything but he is exposed to his cousins every week who do go to daycare but don't get the fluvax...we also have a new baby in the house. Ahhh i just don't know what to do. I have never been interested in them myself and have never even given it a thought for my kids to have it. But my DP is pretty keen for DS to get it this year.
Am having a real mental Dilemma! 😕 I might have to try and just do the ignore until forgotten thing. Haha
Yep, I got DS1 (2.5 yo) and DS 2 (9 mo) vaxxed about 2 weeks ago with the quadrivalent versiom for babies. There are different versions for babies, kids and adults, each targeted at a particular age range.
DS1 got horribly sick from the flu as a baby and I think had some recurring health issues as a result, so now I get him vaxxed annually.
Both boys were fine - no ill effects.
