Well, I know I'm going to push the issue for my
grandson, because he was diagnosed with asthma today.
Poor kid........I'd really hoped he wouldn't get it, he's never even had a cold until this past week, but that's what triggered it. I suppose he never had a chance---both parents, one set of grandparents (us), and two of his uncles are asthmatics! I'm just glad both Mom and Dad know what it sounds like; Amanda said he woke up wheezing this morning, and that was it, off to the doctor they went. So now he's on Prelone (yeeecccccccchhhhhhh, that's what they used to give my sons, which they promptly threw up) and albuterol blow-by nebs........you BET he's gonna get that flu shot!!
As for healthy children, I just don't see how it can be a bad
idea to have them vaccinated against the flu..........Lord knows little ones get sick often enough, and flu can be devastating to the very young as well as the very old. I should think it would be worth doing, but that's JMHO.
