Yesterday my sweet 9 year old came home from school with a permission form for the H1N1 vaccine.What is a parent to do? I would consider us to be a relatively healthy family. I work from home so I am not bringing the office petri dish of germs home. My hubby works in the bowels of a ship so all he brings home is the stench of diesel oil. The children seem to fare well in the cesspool of germs at school. Really… other than the occasional cold during the winter and maybe one case of the “Barfy” flu as the kids call it we are a relatively healthy bunch.
Today I posted a question to my facebook peeps for an informal survey on the yeah or nay on this issue. It appears that my question about whether to vaccinate or not has started quite a discussion.
I would like to hear what you have to say on the matter.
After all you never know who can carry the virus. It is not like germs wear name tags. So is there any way to tell if you pick up germs at the market?
Are you vaccinating your child?
