    Dd had hers done privately last weekend, she has the booster at a later date. We did plenty of research and discussed it with lots of people, and felt comfortable with the decision. We were just too worried at how it attacks so fiercly, and I am still concerned that it can cross seasons...when it first appeared, it was virulent through summer!

    We have not been offered the flu jab for Abigail. I've been offered it becasue I am pregnant, but declined it. I would consider giving it to her if we were offered it, but I would have to think carefully and do lots of research first!

    Ive never been vaccinated for the flu and I've never gotten the flu. My husband got the shot once, and that one year, he got the flu!!

    We chose not to vaccinate Conner. Not to say im willing to take chances with his health, but I'm not "pro" the vaccine.

    I dont think its a bad thing though, and I lot of people who have gotten it and been fine!! I think its really just a matter of personal preference.
