    Yep. I'm in a high-risk group. My daughter and grandson (who live with me) are high-risk, too. So we'll all be getting the vaccine.

    No, no, and I don't have any.

    Everyone that I know that has *ever* gotten the flu shot, got the flu, or became otherwise ill within 2 weeks of getting it. I usually escape the flu, so I'll pass on the shot.

    Besides, those needles are at least 3 feet long, and 1/2 inch in diameter, and that just really doesn't work for me. :scared1:

    No sense flirting with disaster.

    I have to take whatever is available; not sure when the hospital will be administering them. My daughter will just need the H1N1. As far as my grandson, his ped gives him the flu shot every year; I'm assuming he'll get both?

    Flu shots all around. I had swine flu, don't need the vaccine (I think it's a nasal spray, not a shot). Will get it for the kids, though.

    They told us it's an injection; my daughter said the little one gets it as a nasal spray.

    BTW, kids have to repeat the dose. In a week to 10 days (I'd have to look it up).

    Have you seen anyone yet with H1N1?

    We have a sickle cell patient who I am very suspicious might have it (mid-20's, high fevers, flu-like illness); he came up negative on his flu swab, but a negative doesn't rule out the swine flu...
