Re: Spacing out/delaying vax

The minimum age for the flu vaccine is 6 months.

There are flu vaccines that are thiomerosal-free. That said, I have no issues with thiomerosal. If the vaccine supply is plentiful, both of my DDs will get flu shots this year.

The egg issue will depend on your dc's reaction. I am fairly certain the flu vaccine is derived from eggs. It would be something important to discuss with your doctor.
