    Hi Neha,

    Better late than nothing. My pedia said baby should have it next week (he has runny nose now), so the more it's late, told her that winter season is ending so no need.

    Hi mamaS

    Just got his shot done. I told the dr the same thing that winter is near end but she said it is better to do it even this late as this flu season may be prolonged.

    My security service filed this report thismorning. Written by two doctors (this is only part of it).

    Hong Kong is in the peak of the influenza season, and it is expected to continue for some time. The viruses responsible for these outbreaks are seasonal influenza viruses, and the information available to date indicates no marked variations with 2006 or 2007 flu seasons.
    Although the current seasonal influenza vaccination may not match the circulating strains exactly, adults and children who have not had an annual flu vaccination should consider having one.

    The US CDC recommends flu shots for all young children and adults around young children (among other groups) because what might put an adult in bed for a week can kill a small child.
