It's no secret that there are some who favor getting the flu shot yearly, and those who do not favor getting the flu shot yearly.
For years, I have fallen in the latter of the two and have never gotten a flu shot. Over the years I've come across some very good points on both sides. But it wasn't until our son was hospitalized in ICU for RSV complications at almost 3 years of age, and then shortly after diagnosed with asthma, that I began even considering the flu vaccine at the urging of his PCP (this was very early on, before we found his pulmonologist).
For those parents out there whose children suffer with asthma, I ask you to kindly share your thoughts with me regarding the flu vaccine, and any experiences you've had with it as it relates to our journey in managing our kids asthma.
