There was a new study out yesterday in regards to children with asthma who receive the flu shot.  It found that:

"Children Who Get Flu Vaccine Have Three Times Risk Of Hospitalization For Flu, Study Suggests"

"ScienceDaily (May 20, 2009) — The inactivated flu vaccine does not appear to be effective in preventing influenza-related hospitalizations in children, especially the ones with asthma. In fact, children who get the flu vaccine are more at risk for hospitalization than their peers who do not get the vaccine, according to new research that will be presented on May 19, at the 105th International Conference of the American Thoracic Society in San Diego".
