Thanks for the responses!
Mirzam, thanks for writing back, I am totally freaking myself out to. And I understand being scared enough to just do it, I almost called the health unit the other day because I go through waves. At one point I am so confident and then the next day I am a basket case about him getting sick, it is ridiculous!
Xerxella - Do you vaccinate your kids/ What do you personally think about Hib? It sounds like you think it is a bit silly, and I agree that I think it is kind of weird how all of a sudden at 5 they are not going to be at risk anymore.
Mcgee - Nice you found a doctor who is not scaring you in to vaccinating. We are in Canada so our doctors do not immunize, so they don't really say anything, if you ask their opinion they will let you know. And of course as a scared new mom at our two month appointment and she stressed the importance of Hib. What your doctor is saying scares me though, because I thought once kids were older they were no longer at risk for contracting Hib. Cause we do not see many kids, but I do have a 5 year-old nephew in kindergarten and daycare. We don't see him if he is "sick" and I thought our exposure from him was really limited. Our little guy is nine months and still exclusively breastfeed.
