Swine Flu 2: Panic Season

I've been going back and forth over this whole "swine flu vaccine" issue. I'm in the midst of trying to decide whether or not to get myself and my children vaccinated. On one hand, this flu really doesn't seem all that terrible and I'm not entirely convinced of the safety of the vaccine. On the other hand, I have a 6 month old infant and am not sure I want to risk him getting ANY kind of flu if I can help it. I don't know. So far, I'm leaning towards the old fashioned route of strict hand washing and just keeping any of us who may get sick away from the baby as much as possible. I guess I'll just have to keep mulling it over. Hopefully, whatever decision I end up making will be the right one. If any one out there in cyber space who happens to stumble upon my blog would like to offer advice, feel free to comment.
