I can get the flu shot at my local drug store, be in and out in 5 minutes. But my little girl? The pediatric clinic says only "high-risk" children may be approved to even be put on the WAITING LIST for flu. She probably has a better chance of contracting influenza in the time she sits in the clinic's waiting room than in getting a flu shot at all. What's an overly protective parent to do?

Have you tried your local health department?

What about her pediatrician (though you may be shelling out extra cash for a full-blown visit)?

Lie and tell the clinic she has asthma. That'll get her one.

Is she too young to get one at the drugstore too?

County health department was the way to go. Thanks for the suggestions, Leslie!
