Our area had a community-wide flu shot event.  Shots were free for everyone.  Children, however, had to go to the county health centers for their shots.  However, they can go anytime and not just on this one occasion.  Do any of your children's doctors allow heart kids or their siblings to receive the flu mist rather than the flu shot?  I've heard that many doctors do not recommend the flu mist for heart kids and their siblings.

That's interesting about the flu mist.  My asthma child isn't allowed to receive it either, so interesting that they same the same for heart kids.
