Death from Staph Infection?

My question here is, even though the "experts" are pushing the vaccination - would a vaccination for the flu protect them from what's killing them, which is the staph infection? Or, is this just another ploy in scaring parents into getting the shot for their children?

How is his infection Michele? What does it look like, and how can you tell a staph infection from something else? You don't do vax, do you?

Sorry for all the questions... =)

Patrick was fully vax'ed thru age 4 minus the chicken pox vax.

Michele ~ That's kinda scary. Please excuse my ignorance... but what is MRSA? What do you think brought this on? Man... I hope he gets over it pretty quick... I hate when the kids are sick... it's like everything stops.
