  • That is why I'm not sure - its too new and I don't want me or my family to be the guinea pigs to test it.

    As for the regular flu shot - I have gotten it for the past 10 yrs and my kids have gotten it for the past 5 or so years. The only time any of us ever got the flu or had any side effects was the year they had such a shortage. I had an appt to get the kids vax and they called me the day before & said they couldn't do it so I called every county clinic and had them done there...3 days later my kids got the flu
    I DO NOT think it was from the shot, but that they didn't have it long enough for it to take effect before they caught the virus.

  • Really Brandi????
    I have a prescription for my dd Katie (17) but we're still waiting to see if our insurance will cover it. It's very expensive- like several hundred dollars.

  • we d flu shots for the kids, but Im thinking no to the H1N1 - same reasons as above, not sure I trust new vacines and again the last one killed more people than the actual flu
