They swine flu vaccinations have arrived in our town.
I am not too concerned about my husband and myself, but I do worry about my daughter.
She is expecting her first child towards the end of December, and it is recommended that all pregnant women get the shot.
She is really worried about this whole scene, and as her parent, I feel so helpless when it comes to advising her.
She feels it hasn't been tested enough, and she is so afraid it will hurt the unborn baby.
Yet she is scared that she might actually get the flu, and the death rate for expecting mothers with this swine flu is too high to just ignore.
She works from her home so her exposure is only when she grocery shops - she refuses to be around crowds.
If her husband even thinks about getting a sniffle, she says she is coming over here with us until he gets better.
She has certainly thought this through, and we will stand by her decision, and pray that they all stay safe and healthy.
