I am waiting for Eian's Doctors to get the vaccine in. My husband is a fire fighter so he will be getting his tonight and I work in healthcare and got mine yesterday. Of course I would have much rather have had my son get it. I thought that pediatricians would be the first to get the vaccines. I guess I will just keep calling around until they get it.

The kids received their H1N1 shot through the county health department. I was watching their website and calling periodically. I was worried about Connor since he also has reactive airway disease, but they were giving the shot out to anyone who was willing to stand in line and wanted one.

My sister who is a doctor working in a children's hospital- and is pregnant- finally received her shot Friday.

The state of Oklahoma had an H1N1 "blitz" this past weekend & all 3 of my girls & me were able to get the shot - and for FREE even!! They will most likely have another one in a month for the 2nd dose the kids need.

I just want to chime in with the comment that H1N1? DO NOT WANT.

I got it three weeks ago. I'm still sick. Spiked a fever, chills, nasty residual cough and stomach issues.
