I spoke to a social worker from our hospital today about discharge for our little guy. She mentioned giving him shots (not a vaccine) for RSV before he leaves the hospital. According to the CDC, the shots can prevent RSV and the NICU staff recommend going ahead with the shots, considering that preemies are more susceptible to getting sick. Has anyone else opted in for the RSV shots (palivizumab)? Did your kiddo end up getting RSV?
