Swine Flu Vaccine: Will you?
With the school year around the corner, I am struck thinking about the passing of germs and viruses running rampant, as it does every year as flu season approaches. This year, however, beyond the typical question of the flu shot "yay or nay?", I am starting to think of the H1N1/swine flu shot. Have you discussed this with your health care practitioner? Decided whether or not to get the swine flu vaccine? An urbanMama sends the timely email:
I'm wondering what other families are going to do about the swine flu vaccine that's being offered this year. I've never had a flu shot, and am not too keen on the idea. But I have a new baby and a three and a half year old who is starting preschool next month. I hate the idea of all of us being sick with a highly contagious, nasty illness. I'd love to hear what other mamas are doing.
