So nice to hear from you!  We both got ours two weeks ago and I only had a typical/minor reaction this year. Hurray!

Wow, 9 years.  It doesn't seem that long.  I'll get mine soon, and let DS know he needs to get his as well.

So happy to see you Mumaluke. I think of you folks often - and can’t believe how much time has passed either.

I got mine at work yesterday, and promptly sent a nag reminder text to my kids.

Thank you for your advocacy work. ❤️

Hey Everyone! 

Just stopping in, saying hi.  Hope all had a good summer. 

Remember - its time to get your annual Flu Vaccination!! Today marks 9 years since our son passed from the flu.  I can't believe this thread has been going on that long.

my first question to my child would be 'did the nurse show you how to use it correctly'?

having met a few school nurses, many are fab, but met a few who didnt know how to use one correctly, and one who didnt recognise a reaction that my son was having .

Announcement

Feel Good Foods Inc. of Brooklyn, NY is recalling six lots of “Vegetable Fried Rice” frozen meals, UPC 00899039002129 because they may contain undeclared egg. People who have allergies to egg run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled “Vegetable Fried Rice” meals were distributed nationwide to approximately 400 retail stores.
The product, pictured below, comes in a 9 Oz rectangular cardboard carton. Affected product has an ingredient sticker on the back, as well as one of the following best-by dates stamped on the side: 10/27/19; 10/29/19; 12/04/19; 01/25/20; 01/26/20; 01/28/20
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that egg-containing product was distributed in packaging, which did not declare egg as an ingredient.  This problem was a result of the manufacturer failing to remove egg from the product formula as instructed. The manufacturer continued to include egg in the formula, while applying revised ingredient labels to packaging, which did NOT call out egg.
Consumers who have purchased 9 oz cartons of “Vegetable Fried Rice” are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at (718) 499-2242. We are available to answer calls from 9am – 6pm EST.

For me, the thing that bothers me the most is the unilateral decision (it seems) that nurse made without consult with students or parents . . . . a "command decision" without seemingly understanding or respecting the rights of the students to privacy AND the potential for conflicting info vs each student's personally developed allergy plan with his/her personal physician.  I think that it is likely the nurse's perceived challenge to her authority in this situation that may make it hard to work through.

But work through it you must.

Educate - educate - educate as best as possible without seeming to put finger in chest, if that makes sense.
