    son's health due to the H1N1 vaccine. Our son is a type one diabetic. Eight days ago he got the vaccine. early this week he was exposed to H1N1 from someone who got pretty sick. Yesterday our son came down with the fever, cough, chills, aches, headache, etc. We were expecting him to get very sick based on his friend being otherwise healthy but pretty sick from the virus. Son is 8 days out from the vaccine so his immune response is just starting to kick in.  I think I read at the CDC web site the immune response to the vaccine is good at 8 to 10 days. Son is sick but his blood glucose readings have been stable so far on day two and he's mildly sick with fever etc. I attribute this to the vaccine just starting to kick in as the virus starts to affect his health.

    Insulin in Ca public schools ruling STAYED during appeal. Great ruling for 15,000 diabetic students.
