flu shots?

Do infants get the annual flu shot?  My DS is 10 weeks old and I was wondering if he should get it.  My pedi didnt mention it at his 2 month visit.

    They can't get it until they are 6 months old. I'm surprised your pedi didn't mention it - ours requested DD1 and both me and DH get it since baby cannot. She will get it at her 6 month appt in January.

    They can't get the shot until they are six months old.  DH, DD, and I all got our flu mist yesterday to help protect DS until he can get his in January.

    Like everyone said not till 6 months. You need to have all the caretakers (parent grandparents, sitters etc) get the flu shot to protect your baby.
