Q.

Flu vac

Hi!
My baby is 7 months old. This will be her first winter. Is it a good idea to get my household to get teh flu vaccine? I am still breastfeeding, can I take one? Or is it better to see how well she copes with bugs making their rounds and give her a chance to fight?

There is no indication for the flu vaccine in a healthy family.
