We haven't heard much about H1N1, aka swine flu, this season. But it's still out there, as is the good old regular flu virus.

To avoid a sniffly, feverish fate for their children, many parents get their kids a yearly flu shot. But not everyone. Last year, when H1N1 was big news, an Associated Press poll found that one third of parents were opposed to the swine flu vaccine. In September of this year, the American Lung Association urged kids and adults to get vaccinated. And that was before a baby tragically died from the flu.

Have your kids gotten their flu shots yet? Did you get one for yourself?
