Re: Against Swine Flu but kid has Asthma...what to do?

Our son has cystic fibrosis and we fully intended to have him vaccinated for h1n1. He got his seasonal flu vaccine in September. DH got h1n1 flu last month and indicated his lungs felt horrible -- worse than any flu, bronchial bug he'd ever gotten in the past. Relatively healthy adult, he was extremely worried at how our child would fare should he get it.
We were able to get his first vaccine a couple weeks ago -- still major shortages in our area.
