So i took my nine month old to his check up this week and everything went great but my doctor was asking me if i wanted to give him the flu shot i told her not today cuz i had to think about it first. I need some opinions, i never had the flu shot myself and have been fine but its different when it comes to my baby. Who has given their babies the flu shot (not the H1N1 cuz im not considering that at this point anyways) and why and how old were they?

Grace got her flu shot when she was 6 months old and had no side effects from it. This year she was 15 months old when she got it and she had a little cold but she was also getting her first molars in, so I think it was a combination of everything.

I am in the medical field and I, personally, think it's better to let them or anyone fight it off by themselves. As long as you seek medical attention at the first signs of being sick.

they are requiring ANYONE who works in the health field to get the H1N1 in cincinnati hospitals even if you are a housekeeper. and schools are requiring it here too.

My LO doesn't get flu shots...he is breastfed and stays home with me everyday. In 2 out of 4 brands of the flu shot there is a full dose of mercury and all 4 brands have formaldehyde.
