As a mom of a 27 week preemie, now 5 mths, I am feeling run over by the ped and neonatologists.

I didn't even know they had a vaccine for RSV now.

There is not a vaccine for RSV that I am aware of.

My daughter received Synagis last year and will be receiving it this year. She is not a preemie but has a corrected heart defect that requires medication...one of the indicators for Synagis. I was told last year that if my DD got RSV she would have to be hospitalized for sure.

Check out the preemie board on Ivillage. They may have more relevant experiences. All the preemies I know of receive Synagis and have stayed out of the hospital.
