The Swine Flu Vaccine And Children

Just a reminder that today and tomorrow, H1N1 vaccines will be available at the Granada Hills Recreation Center from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

For parents who are still on the fence about the risks and benefits of the vaccine, I recommend reading "Swine Flu And Children" from Babble.com. The most salient quote:

"For parents who are still concerned about the potential risk of Guillain-Barre Syndrome, it may be helpful to consider that more children have already died since August 30th of this year from the swine flu than those who died from GBS during the vaccination period in 1976 (Approximately 500 people contracted GBS and twenty-five died)."
