The other flu vax thread got me thinking - my 4-year-old has reactive airway disease (pneumonia 3 times and bronchitis twice in 3 years), born at 31 weeks and on a vent for a week, and is in daycare 40 hours a week, should he get the flu vax? I'm staunchly anti-vax, he hasn't been vaccinated since he was 6 months old and my new baby hasn't had any, but I'm getting myself all worked up and need to be talked down. Every friggin' little cold goes straight to his chest and way overstays its welcome and it literally just now hit me that "duh, the flu is a respiratory illness" (well, I've known that fact for years, but it just now turned into an "a-ha!" moment).
