Update On Flu Vaccine

So, we saw my daughter's pediatrician this a.m., and she didn't push me on the seasonal flu vaccine, nor did she push me to seriously consider H1N1 when it comes out - she said "there is no safety data" on the H1N1 vaccine, and when I told her that my philosophy is that the flu vaccines generally are optional, she said "completely." 

Now please note - my daughter has no underlying health issues - no asthma, no compromised immune system from something else, etc. - so seek your own advice, please (sorry, it's the lawyer in me).  But I will keep an ear to the ground on this and let you all know when/if I hear more that's interesting.
