Both of mine are getting their 2nd shots on Friday even though Sarah quite possibly already had H1N1 (before they got the 1st shots). I will also get vaxed if it ever becomes available for healthy adults, even though the virus has apparently already peaked in Colorado and I'm not really that worried about it anymore. I figure if there is another, more virulent outbreak, being vaxed for this strain will probably provide some protection (just like being exposed to the 1950s flu apparently is giving some protection to elderly people now).

My twins got their H1N1 shots on Oct. 29th and came down with what we were told was most likely H1N1 on Oct. 31st. I had one that had a really high fever (105.3) and the other that hung out around 101. My older daughter also got it and was like my son and didn't really get too much above 101. We are being asked to get the twins their 2nd H1N1 shot and for my oldest to get her 1st shot next week. I really don't want to do it b/c I feel like we've already gotten through it and they probably have immunity from being sick. But, there is not way to know for sure if they had it b/c they don't test for it around here. Abby had a hard time with her arm hurting for a month after the shot. She complained multiple times a day. So, would you get the 2nd shot (and 1st shot for the other child) if you were in my shoes? For those of you that had kids with H1N1, are you doing the vaccine or 2nd shot?
My boys almost definitely had it (tested positive for type A influenza in AUGUST) and we're getting the shots.
I would get the 2nd shot. Unless you are positive they had H1n1. Your older daughter's fever around 101 is iffy... Dr.s have told us before in the past fever is almost always over 102 with H1N1. When ours probably had it their fever ranged from 102-102.9 WITH tylenol and tamiflu. (infectious disease specialist at Kaiser).
Even if they did have it, more immune reaction can only help. i don't know if you saw the information I posted earlier in the thread that it IS possible (though rare) to get H1N1 again, or after vaccination.
