    Will your baby(ies) get the flu shot?

    I am undecided. I have never given my kids any flu shot nor do I get one myself. After doing some research, the flu shot being given will not protect against the avian flu if it comes here.

    Just wondering what others are doing?

    Both of mine will get it as they are in a high risk group because of me working at a peds office and having hands on experience with kids who are sick. Otherwise, I wouldn't have them get it. I will also get it again as I am considered high risk working in the office.

    Just so you know, there is a flu vaccine for the avian flu.

    Hannah will receive her Flu shot Tuesday.

    I would like to receive the shot as, I have no immune system at all. I always seem to catch everything and hate to catch the Flu this year.
    Live Love and Be Happy!

    I don't think so. We didn't do it last year either for the same reasons you mentioned.

    We did it last year for the first time because the girls were newborns and susceptible. I'll do it again this year and will probably immunize them as well. It was nice having a winter without the flu.
