Should I let my 6 month old get the flu shot?

My child will be six months soon, and my question is should I let him get the flu shot. I stopped getting the flu shot years ago because I only got sick, very sick, after getting it. Never gotten sick after I stopped getting up but very concerned for him, I do not want him to be miserable.

I stopped letting my son get the flu shot around the same time because he had the same issue. He hasn’t had one in almost 9 years and he has only gotten a cold.

Do your research over flu jabs…The way i see it the jab doesnt get rid of all flu…So whats the point…

Yes. Go to your pediatrician and they will do a 2 step shot

I don’t get my kids flu shots, but it’s a personal decision. You should weigh the risks and go from there.

The flu shot is supposed to activate an immune response (will make you feel sick) that’s how you know you are gaining immunity from it
Get the shot, most mommies will give you anecdotal stories to scare you out of it but the fact is the flu kills and it is preventable with the shot

You didn’t get the flu from your flu shot. You got another strain. I vote get the flu shot on the chance they got the strains semi right, but it’s definitely your choice.

I’d definitely get it a lot of others like to discourage but I’d say get it because the flu can be deathly for young ones

I would say yes, what people don’t remember is that the flu shot does not cover every strained of the flu but it does cover for the ones that are more deadly.
