Vaccinations are a touchy subject among most parents, but the flu vaccine seems to divide even those who are strict about vaccinations.

I got my first flu shot ever last year mostly because I happened to be at the doctor for my annual check up and it was offered to me. While my kids are always vaccinated with the standard vaccine routine, I’ve never gotten them a flu shot, although I have considered getting it for them this year.

Will this change your mind?
