I am in America at the moment and reading all the paranoia about swine flu back home has got me really worried about coming back to London.

I got the jab while pregnant and I got the jab a few weeks ago.

But should my 9 month old get a jab? do you give it to babies?
I am so confused and there is so much conflicting advice...

My 6-month-old had it and he was born 3 months early so really he's only 3 months old. Don't know if he'll make a decent immune response to it being so young, but he certainly didn't react badly to the vaccine in any way (and didn't even wake up when nurse gave him the jab). GP and I took the view he was more at risk from sf than the jab, which is why we went for it.
