Re: Torn on regular flu shot for 2 year old???

I gave my son the flu shot last year when he was 1 and everything turned out fine. I work at a health care facility so they request that all employees get the flu shot as well, seeing as how we are exposed to it day in and day out. I get one and have for the past 5 years or so. I skipped it one year and got terribly sick. Could have just been coincidence or not. I can't be for certain. I do know that you have to do what is right for you and your family. For some its getting the shots and immunizations, for others its all natural preventative routes.

Whatever your stance is, you know in your heart what is right for your child. Every family and every person is different. Good luck in your decision!
