It would be a good idea for your 3 year old daughter to have the flu shot this year.

Hi Mom,

It is safe from 6 months old, according to the pamphlet in the actual flu jab. I gave it to my children at 1 year old already and it did help them. I was particularly nervous about Swine Flu, so gave them the jabs.
