Has your child received all of their scheduled vaccinations? My sweet pea has!
Have you delayed or changed the vaccination schedule? She received her 6 months shots a few weeks late only due to vacation and being out of town.
Has your child received H1N1, seasonal influenza or chickenpox vaccine? She has not received them yet, but I will be okay with her getting the flu and H1N1 shots, but I won't do chicken pox. I got it when I was younger and I don't see an issue with getting your immunity that way. One less shot will not make her any less healthy.
