Re: flu vaccine for your kids?

I'm fairly certain that the flu vaccine has never been tested in pregnant women or children under 2. No I have never gotten it, nor will I give it to my children. Green med info.com is a site with a wealth of clinical studies that pertain to the flu vaccine.

No. We don't vaccinate at all.
My daughter's school is providing free flu shots to all kids so my daughter will stay home that day, it's on a Friday, so as to not be exposed. Last year, all of the children who got the shot (in my DD's class) were sick a lot. Only 1 of the 5 who did not get the flu shot was sick at all. Could be coincidence, and it's just anecdotal but thought I'd throw it out there.
If I worked in the medical field, I'm not sure what I'd do.
