... your kids against swine flu. I was against it, but then a Dr friend said that I really should as although there were less cases of death with seasonal flu, many of the people that have died or been really ill have been young, healthy people. So now I'm not sure, would you vaccinate?

Hello, I'm new to Paris (Avenue de la Grande Armée) and I need to visit a hairdresser very soon! I'm Irish and have wavy hair. Looking to find a place that can give a good cut as well as highlights. I see in previous posts that Polished Hair Care and Toni&Guy (in Boulevard des Courelles) have been recommended. Has anyone had a cut and highlights in either place? Are there any other places worth checking out? Appreciate any guidance you can give. Thanks :-) Sinead.

Hello everyone, I'll be visiting my spouse for a few weeks next month from the US and hoping to get my teeth cleaned at a more reasonable price than in New York. Does anyone know the approximate price range for a basic dental check-up without x-ray? Is this possible for less than €100? And please email me your recommendations for an English speaking dentist with good prices. jill at jillwoodward.com is my address, except change the "at" to @ to help avoid spambots. Thanks!

I apparently need to choose a GP and always go to see that one, but I don't know how to choose one. Do I need to go and see one close to where I live or can I choose any Dr, ie one near work? Also do I need to go to the Drs office and register or do I need to get some sort of form, or do I just wait until I need to see a Dr?

Hi all, I'm new on the forum. I'm from the Netherlands and I have been living in Paris since September 1st, 2009 because my husband was transferred by his employer. We have an almost 10 months old son and I'm looking for English speaking general practitioner, dentist, etc. Since it is not allowed to post personal details about them on the site, I would really appreciate to receive your recommendations by e-mail. The most urgent is a GP so our son can get his next vaccinations on time (within a month really). Does a GP do this or should I look for a child health specialist? Any advice is very welcome! Thanks, Annemieke

Hi, does anyone know why my level of reimbursement (for general doctors visits) from CPAM has been steadily reducing, it started at 70% of the tarif conventionnel then fell to 50% and is now 30%. I know I don't get a 100% reimbursement as I have not selected a medicine traitant but 30% seems a little bit low. Thanks

My department is moving office for the second time this year and we are moving to Boulogne. As I need to make an appointment with a phlebologist on a regular basis for the next few months Im trying to find one that would be either near work near Porte de St Cloud or in Surnesnes/Rueil-Malmaison where I could go after work or on Saturdays. Once I move it will be virtually impossible to make appointments with the doctor I've previously seen as the commute is too difficult. thanking your for any advice on this matter.
