Flu shot

…do you take your kids to have a/the flu shot “this season”?

-Why?

-why not?

can’t figure out if it’s a good thing or not (my son is nearly 2 years old and don’t go to kindergarten or something. Only once in a while a small playgroup)

I don’t think you are going to figure out such an important decision by asking a few blokes on this forum. There are very good books on this subject and people for and some against.
I am against for my personal reasons. I have a 10 YO, and never had a flu shot and never had the flu.
Very healthy kid.
Good Luck.

My wife looked into the free flu shots they are offering for under 2 year olds.
It turns out that the free flu shots contain mercury, whereas if you choose you can pay NT$1000 for the same shot without the mercury.
WTF are they thinking?

Mercury causes brain damage It’s the same stuff found in the old style thermometers and told not to break open and play with as a kid.
