    Of course its your choice, I just don't understand your reasoning for declining it for yourself. Just because you have a vaccine that doesn't mean you need to give them same to your DS. Your having the vaccine can offer some level of protection to your DS without you having to vaccinate him for flu, as you are then far less likely to get the flu and pass it on to him. So you'd be giving him *some* protection with zero risk to him, iykwim? But yes, to each their own, I was just trying to understand your POV.

    I got mine last week, first time in years I've had the vax. DH gets it free with work every year and is never sick. I'm a nanny and constantly catching things from the kids (they go to childcare part time). I had a 24 hour flu last year that turned into bronchitis which was awful. So fingers crossed nothing like that this year! My vax was $34.

    I had my baby done (10 months). i wanted to reduce the risk of her getting it or lessen the effects. I work in this area and don't see it any different to the scheduled vax. Babies and children has the highest rate of hospitalisations. Being healthy wont stop the virus attacking the host there if a portal of entry but yes may help prevent complications.
    She did fine. She had a moderate temp for a day and a half and slept a lot but I consider that great that her immune system is now capable of responding and fighting it if exposed to the wild virus. And nothing compared to what she would go through if she did get the flu. For me it is all about minimising the risk.
    The more people in the community that get it the better and that way the here can protect those that can't get the vax like babies.
    It is a hard decision though I know!
