I say get the shot. Its really not 'untested' or 'dangerous' as some people are saying. Its the same thing as getting the seasonal flu shot. In fact, if the swine flu outbreak had happened a few months earlier then the H1N1 vaccine would have been included in the seasona flu shot, and next year it will be.
My younger 2 kids have already had the H1N1 shot (they are 33 weeker and 32 weekers) due to their age and medical conditions. Once its availiable for older kids, then my older 2 will also get it (they are both 35 weekers.) All 4 of mine have had the seasonal flu shot.
Good luck with your decision
We're non-vaxers and we won't be getting the H1N1 vax as well.
I also think we had the flu recently. Fever, lingering cough, aches, sore throat...it felt different from anything I've had before. DD (30 weeker), despite being surrounded by our germs, mainly had weepy eyes.
Personally, I'm more worried about RSV than H1N1.
