Dr. Ackerman,
I'm a RN on Mother/Baby and I have 4 kids that I homeschool (I only add that because my kids aren't around a whole lot of kids on a regular basis). I did not vaccinate my kids or myself last year for H1N1 due to the uncertainty of the side effects of it. We all ended up getting it and had fevers of 100-102 for about 24-36 hours with no other symptoms.
What are the effects of the vaccine and how does it relate to the side effects of the flu vaccine in the past? I'm leaning toward not vaccinating this year but want to be fully informed before making the decision.
