Flu Shot — The Bump
Indiana Babies

Flu Shot

Mads got hers yesterday at her 18 month appointment.  Last year she had to have 2 H1N1 and 2 regular flu shots.  Good news is this year the right H1N1 strain is in the vaccine, so that means just 1 shot for the flu the whole year.  Hopefully this is true for everyone else! 

ETA: If your babies were too little for the flu shot or, you know, not born last year, at least it'll only be 2 shots total this year and not 4!

Re: Flu Shot

  • How did she do?  Last year Jake could have cared less about shots.  He never cried or fussed for any of the flu shots (fat thighs I think,lol).  I fear now that he is older, it's going to be harder!

    She did a lot better than I thought she would.  She cried for about .5 seconds and then moved on to showing the nurse and doctor her dance class moves.

  • I know I was excited too!  1 injection instead of 4 like last year, lol!!!

    Andrea - Andrew took it a little bit harder than last year (last year he just kind of peeped) because he was angry at the nurse :-) it wasn't too bad though, honestly.  Nothing like his vaccines or Synagis. 

    He was okay once I gave him his car - I come prepared with distractions.  Of course once I took his car to put him in the stroller and take him to the car, he wasn't too happy with me :-)
