Default Both kids are now vaccinated!

Finally it's done and overwith, no more worry or thoughts of should I or shouldn't I get the vax what's done is done and I'm relieved! Both kids are fine, no reaction so far so I won't even go there.

The visit to the clinic was very easy he got right in with no wait and ds didn't make a fuss so that was nice.

In a few more days no more worries that the kids will get the H1N1 virus.

Now Dh and I will wait our turn and be done with it till the next pandemic rolls around !

Hold on now. Immunity isn't immediate.

5 days to a week?

You going to lock them in?

Don't wrestle with a pig. The pig enjoys it and you get muddy.

We were told 10 days to 2 weeks for immunity.

Must be slower acting.

Ours got it about 10 days after he got the vaccine. I'm hoping it's milder because of the vax.

You party pooper! Are you winding me up?

Are you sure that they got it even after the vax?

In chat, an interesting question was raised. An aticle, (I've seen it SOMEWHERE!), was referrenced & it's an intriguing diagrammation of the developing clades - at what point in time they were affecting what countries. Several of us had the same question. If for example, I caught Clade 1 in May & Clade 6 is now the one circulating in my area - can I catch it again? Is THAT why we're hearing about people getting it twice. Another member raised a very good question - is the vax equally effective against all clades?

I hope that member identifies themself & takes credit for what may be a crucial question.
