Re: RSV vaccine for preemie?

If you do it, see if they'll have a nurse come to the house to give the shot. I wouldn't want to go into the pedi's office every would probably do more harm than good!

The thing about synagis, is it's not like a regular vaccine. I don't know the specifics, but it's not going to have all the possible side-effects as say, the MMR or DTaP.

I'm sure it still has SOME possible side effects, but I'd feel comfortable giving it and we don't vax at all. DD only doesn't get it because we've chosen not to advance her care beyond this point.
