Quick H1N1 question-


Recommended Posts

They said kids under 9 need two doses to be FULLY protected. BUT, after you get the first dose are you "somewhat" protected? Enough to go back to preschool, LOL? My daughter has it at her preschool. We pulled her out but there's a vaccine clinic this week. I'm wondering if she would be "good enough" to go back after one dose...

 

I've looked all over the internet for this info, but haven't seen it noted anywhere...

They say that younger kids do not have as robust an immune response as older kids. I would not send her back until she is fully vaccinated if that is the whole reason you pulled her out. Even then, please know that she can still get the virus. Taking the vaccine is NOT a guarantee (no matter what the vaccine is - chickenpox, etc are the same way).

:iagree: My daughter is 8 so she has to receive 2 doses. She has gotten her 1st dose but I am still keeping her in a bubble until she is completely vaccinated. The kids wanted to go to Burger King yesterday to play on the playground. I absolutely positively said NO WAY!!! Those things are breeding grounds for germs. I'm extra cautious right now.

 

If I were you I wouldn't send her back until she is completely vaccinated.

 

Just my .02
