RSV Shot... deeletedd South Gate, California 63 posts

My son was born at 34w5d and after his stay at the NICU they advised us to get his RSV shots once the season starts..I have not had a chance to talk to my Pedi since he was out of the office, after speakink to the nurses they mentioned that the RSV shot has been out of stock for them. My question to the mommies of premies is have you ever heard of the shot being out of stock and have you ever heard of premies not getting the shot and getting by well threw the season?...and what was your experience with the rsv shot if you had your LO get it?

Oh, they're out of it... i didnt see that. How do they not have enough? Preemies are supposed to be top priority when it comes to RSV shots... Thats messed up.

My little girl was born at 29 weeks. She got her first dose of synagis this past week. They recommend it for babied born 35 weeks and before. I recommed you get them. RSV can be bad for term babies but deadly for preemies.

Anything can be out of stock. And especially this season with everyone panicking. I have a 28 weeker and a 30 weeker. Neither ever got RSV shots. If don't have other risk factors, I wouldn't stress it too much. My kids have been very healthy. Healthier than most kids - preemie or otherwise.

My son got his shot a couple weeks ago. That sucks that they are out of stock. Where I go, they only give them to premies. My sister had her son at full term and he got RSV and almost died from it and it was horrible to see him like that.

my daughter gets her rsv tomorrow, and this is her second season. I have never heard of it being out of stock. There is however certain criteria you baby has to meet to get it. And in arkansas they have to be approved for the shot.

My twins were born at 31 weeksand have a pedi at one of the best hospitals in michigan- your doctor might not be "out" of the shot but like mine they order it for each patient. So I asked about it a month ago and they had to order it for my twins. Then they will have it every month until the season ends. My insurance isnt going to cover it, Im considering seeing how much it is through the community health places.
