    Got my daughter the H1N1 vaccine today

    Never been to the Polk county health department before. That is an interesting place to say the least.

    Was super quick though....only about 10 min and we were done. Have to go back in 3-4 weeks for the 2nd dose since she is only 7.

    Would have got it myself, but I'm not in a "priority" group. Probably get it when I take her back in a few weeks for the 2nd dose.

    Actually my doctor told me I probably wouldn't be able to get it at all this year. Way too many priority groups in front of this 40 year old healthy male.

    Might be the case. I fall in that demographic myself. Could have easily fibbed and said I was a health care worker or something but what's the point.

    I'll pass on getting a h1n1 shot or a flu shot for that matter.

    Wasn't a shot...was the mist. In either case, glad you are bulletproof

    I am in a priority group, and I am not sure I am going to get it. I have to wait for the shot version and not the mist.

    Mist is live (weak) virus and may result in complitications for people with compromised (immuno surpressed, asthma, etc.) systems. Flu shot is dead virus.

    Re: Got my daughter the H1N1 vaccine today

    I just saw that Story county will not be having their clinics until Oct 24th. We'll definitely get it for our 2 year old and my wife because she is pregnant but it looks like students are not on the list so I'll have to wait. If you have children it doesn't make sense not to get this.

    Does anyone know if the mist also uses egg whites, like the shot does? Just wondering due to an egg white allergy.

    If you have ever had the real flu, not the 24 to 48 hr. stuff, you will always get a flu shot. It is nasty and lasts for weeks.
