Young child has leg pain from vaccine

I asked Felix' doctor when we went in a couple of weeks ago, and she echoed this - that the wee ones do have 'good' immunity after just the one shot. I asked her opinion as a doctor/parent, and she said that while public health is still saying that the 2nd shot is necessary, she wouldn't be getting it for her 21 month old.

I've decided not to do the 2nd shot, because Felix was in a LOT of pain (limping for 2 days!) after, and I'm pretty sure he's already had H1N1 already. It's a tough decision no matter what, eh? To get the shot, to not get the shot, to get the 2nd shot, to not get the 2nd shot... OY!
