Does anyone here have experience with getting their young kids done? Did it seem to make a difference?

Who is at risk?
Yearly influenza epidemics can seriously affect all populations, but the highest risk of complications occur among children younger than age 2 years, adults aged 65 years or older, pregnant women, and people of any age with certain medical conditions, such as chronic heart, lung, kidney, liver, blood or metabolic diseases (such as diabetes), or weakened immune systems.

Yes. My dd is 17 months. She is high risk for complications as she has congenital heart disease.
However. .. even if she didn't I would still get it. I get it. Hubby gets it. I would hate to see my child suffer through it.
This week actually she contracted RSV. It sucks... We've been sent to hospital but managed to keep her home for the duration so far.
I know my daughter is different to the 'norm' but flu can cause complications in healthy kids too.
It was recommended by our paed/gp/cardiologist. ...
It's not the same as the adult one by the way. Here's some helpful info.
There's also some info I got from my paed but I'm on my phone so can't find it.
I have several friends who have had their children immunised and there's been no issues.

http://www.immunise.health.gov.au/in...enza-qanda#are has some good FAQs. Apparently there is a small chance of fevers if the flu vax and pneumo vax are given together in children.

DS has had to go on antibiotics again this week after catching a nasty bug from child care, it broke our to be a bad flu... then a bacterial infection. In DS flu's and colds cause asthma symptoms and majority of the time he gets croup as well.
Im just over it he is sick all the damn time. I might get this flu vaccine for him and hopefully it makes a big difference. His childcare is just a big germ farm.
