what the other girl was saying is the shot has to be given 4 times not 3 and you can't just to one big shot and be done. My son he got his first flu shot and next month he will get his second dose.

There is no better. Your child has to have the vaccine given 4 times at different times.

are you saying because youd then need dtap and hib? because they usually have 2 nurses come in and administer shots on both sides of the leg at the same time where i am.. so its not really any more pain to your kid.
