We all got our Swine flu vaccines. I even got the kids both doses and used the mist which is supposed to be more effective than the shot but to my surprise I took ds to the doc today.
His symptoms are headache, cough, congestion, 100 fever, nausea, throwing up. I thought he had a sinus infection or a stomach virus and cold but he tested positive for Type A flu which the pedi says is the Swine flu/H1N1. They immediatly started him on Tamiflu and my OB started me on Tamiflu also.
The pedi said though that since I had him vaccinated he won't end up getting severely ill from it or having any severe complications so I'm very relieved about that! Had I not vaccinated him I'd probably be freaking out right about now.
Just thought I'd share. I've had some people tell me well he got sick b/c you vaccinated him but that's just not true. He had his vaccines finished back in November. It's been too long for the vax to make him sick now.
The hospital here was giving the shot to children and the mist only to the adults because they told us the shot was more effective than the mist for kids - go figure. So much conflicting info! Your DS had both doses? Hopefully it will be a mild case. We didn't get Gus the vax, since he had it (the actual flu) back in June - but wouldn't you know it he got it again in November! 2nd time was mild, he gt over it fast - but man his fever went high, up to 107! Hope Joshua feels better fast!
