RE: [IP] Flu shot?



Krista, I just got a flu shot two weeks ago and, except for a slight
elevation in glucose for a couple of days, I was fine. I believe Kathleen is
correct in that they guess which flu strain will pose the most problems for
people and sometimes they're right and sometimes they aren't.
I'm with George....I do NOT want to end up in a hospital where I usually run
into more problems than the one I came in with....:)

My 2 1/2 yr.old was diagnosed last year and is on the pump.  I hesitate to
give him the flu shot.  I've heard that some people get the shot and then
get
 the flu. Also, there are a few different strains so is it really worth it?
Any
thoughts?
