I was wondering, with the new of this year’s flu hitting epidemic proportions, has your family had their flu shot?
This isn’t about judgement or anything like that. I’m just wondering what your reasons for either getting the flu shot or not.
Are your reasons based on personal beliefs or is it a financial issue?
I just want to better understand what’s going on. 🙂
The Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has a variety of resources related to influenza and influenza vaccines. Check them out at http://vaccine.chop.edu or http://vaccine.chop.edu/parents.
@Lauren at the VEC thank you for sharing the links. I hope people look into this, especially this year.
I got it, because I am pregnant, otherwise I wouldn’t have because I couldn’t afford it. Hubby got it because it was free at work (he is a cna). Soren-monster didn’t get it, but not because I am against it in any way. This is the first year he hasn’t gotten it, mostly because he no longer gets wic so I never got reminded by the ladies there, and he hasn’t had to go to the dr in 9 months, so it never crossed my mind.
