An addendum: one of my sons caught the darn thing when I brought him in to the office for the shot. So I figured I better get the second son the shot quickly, brought it home for him (not taking him in to that infested place!) and sure enough, just two hours after getting the shot, he says "my legs really hurt and I have a headache" and puts his head down on the dinner table and starts with that dry, repetitive cough. Arghhhhh!

Just curious: has anyone heard of a thimerosal-free version of the H1N1 injection yet? I have an appointment to have my 4 yo vaccinated on Wednesday...he has a hx of asthma, so I know he is high-risk...at the same time, I would MUCH prefer a thimerosal-free version, but, alas, none to be had in our town! I know what the literature says about the relative safety of thimerosal, etc., but my personal comfort level just isn't there yet.

kpzr- Yikes, that IS scary! That's exactly what I worry about...that he might catch the disease when he goes in for the shot! That's part of the reason I'm hesitant to go (well, that and the thimerosal.) Hope your boys are feeling better!

The supply is completely state dependent. Some states have widespread supply, some are still limited. Mine is giving it to almost no-one. Private offices can't even get any. My oldest son had the disease, and if we hadn't happened to be in the doctor's office when his temp spiked I wouldn't have even had him checked- all he had was a HA and a temp of 103 for 3 days. Never coughed once. Positive in office.

Hello,

In order to build our resource for people asking questions about the H1N1 vaccine, we would like to survey specifically physicians (house staff or attendings) about their attitudes toward the H1N1 vaccine.

We will release the full results of the poll in 1 week.

Thanks!

Physicians only please on this one.
