I got it during both of my pregnancies. It was the only way to give my babies resistance to the flu in the first few months, when they were too young to be immunized on their own. With babies, it can be hard to shelter them. My friend had an immunocompromised son, and even with a GIANT RED SIGN on her stroller that said not to reach in and touch him, strangers did just that and he ended up back in the hospital because of it. I was not taking any chances that some stranger would give my son the flu. I'd already lost one child, I was not risking the life of another if I had it within my means to protect him.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!
