[IPp] Re: flu shots

>>The only time Lauren had a stomach flu  <sound of
knocking on wood>  was the first year of diagnosis after having the
second of two flu shots to build up immunity. I wondered if any kids skip
the vaccine ama.
Just curious.

Hi Karen,

The flu vaccine isn't for stomach influenza.  It's for the 
respiratory influenza...cold, sore throat, fever, achy muscles, etc.

Noah hasn't had the flu since he started getting the vaccine four years ago.

Cindy, mom to 16 y/o Noah
