When news came out that the government would be offering the H1N1 vaccination at my child’s school, my first reaction was: great, where do we sign up? But, now I’m a little on the fence.
News reports are saying a third of parents oppose the H1N1 vaccination. Reasons are because people think the vaccine was put together too quickly and hasn’t been adequately tested, or they think giving their child the regular flu shot should be good enough.
I’ve always followed our pediatrician’s advice, making sure our kids get their recommended vaccinations and get the seasonal flu shot each year. But, all this hearsay going around about the H1N1 vaccination has left me perplexed.
My gut tells me to go with what my pediatrician recommends: get the H1N1 vaccination. But, I’m curious, what are you planning to do?
