Would you get the 2011 H1N1 "swine flu" vaccine for your child or for yourself?
In the county I work in, Westchester County, there has just been the first pediatric flu death (an “otherwise healthy 4 year old boy) from H1N1 “swine flu.” This makes me very anxious, as a parent of an otherwise healthy pre-schooler. However, I know that there is always controversy about flu vaccines not being tested enough, not vaccinating against all strains of the flu, or about the vaccines causing other serious complications and side effects.
Would you get the 2011 H1N1 flu vaccine for either yourself or your child?
