It is hard to get flu shot for the kids these days. I guess a lot more people are getting them for their children. We always bring our kids for flu shots every year, you probably will too if you know that many are dying because of influenza. Then this year, you have the Swine flu!
Good thing that my children are not scared of doctors (and even dentists). It's not hard to get them to sit on the manual exam tables in the doctor's office. I think one of the key is talking to them days before the actual visit so they will have an idea on what is going to happen. It is also helpful if you're not nervous yourself.
