Re: Flu shot?

I got one at the OB office. My doctor 'required' all his patient to get one. I use the term 'required' loosely because I'm sure if I turned it down, he wouldn't have made me get it. Honestly, I told my husband I want him and my other two children to get one since our baby will be born in early Feb. we really don't need a newborn sick with the flu - this is my main motive for getting the shot. to protect the baby. I did feel a tiny bit flu-ish for a couple of days, but it didn't slow me down.

You can check the CDC website I believe for the statistics on flu hospitalization. Actually, here it is:
