Quoting Nikki Lawson:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Madi's*Mama:</b>" Here on Medicaid you HAVE to vaccinate your ... [snip!] ... their immunity. And flu vaccines are recommended throughout the flu season. No matter when you get it. It still works the same."I know they get the 2 doses but like I said, my pedi said it's pointless to get one past November since flu season is already in full swing and you most likely will already be exposed when you get the shot so the shot won't do much good.
