For those of you who have gotten your LOs 6 month shots already- did you also get them the flu vax at the same time? DS was too young to get one for his first flu season, but I know they are recommended for 6 months and older. However I know she will have to get the scheduled 3 vaxes at her 6 month appointment but am worried about adding an additional vax at that time. What have you done or are you planning to do? I have about a week to make up my mind.

We did Alex's first flu shot with his 6 month vacc's. We go back a month later for the booster (only have to do that the first time they get the flu shot). Alex did OK. Ran a bit of a fever for the weekend, but he did that with the 4 month shots, too, so I don't think the flu shot really added to it. Ben got his flu shot at the same time and then we went to the allergy clinic for mine.

We just got Sally's today with the rest of her shots. She's a bit feverish, but she has been everytime she gets shots so far.

We got the "2mo" shots - but that is it so far. We are doing a slower/delayed vax schedule...and I haven't really decided on the flu vax yet. I should think about it though - as we are due for his next appt in about a week or so & I am SURE they will ask. It just seems like he got so big overnight & I thought I would feel like I Had more time to decide..........

After researching (possible) long term effects of early vaccinations. we decided to delay. Nicholas received his first ones at his first Dr.s appt because my DH took him and he never says no or stands his ground, but since then I have decided to wait until he's at least 18 months to continue. He's not in day care or around many other people so I think that is the best decision for us right now. He'll be 18 months in December, so I might just do it then but a few at a time.
