They can actually catch rsv easier if they stop the shots to early.
My 25 weeker had the RSV immunoglobulin from October to April last year. This year, Medicaid cut it down to only 5 injections She started in November this year and her last shot will be in March. I will keep her out of the public throughout April.

I don't understand why it would be easier to catch RSV after they get the shots. Physiologically, it doesn't make sense. It's simply a virus like any other and it doesn't discriminate. Can you explain that further? Thanks
