Can I Get Better Protection If I Get 2 Flu Shots A Couple Of Months Apart
Daughter will be 6 months & getting 1st flu shot. I know she has to get the 2nd a month later but does the 1st provide any protection until next shot?
What about babies that don't have protection b/c they haven't gotten both flu shots due to age? If a baby gets the flu do they typically get better?
Most do: Flu can hit an any age and the outcome varies.We recommend that pregnant women get the flu injected vaccine during pregnancy so the antibodies she makes will be shared and protect baby in its early months. Those that come in close contact with a new baby should also get a flu shot,so they don't bring it to baby.Early recognition and care can lead to good outcomes if a baby gets flu. ...Read more

Hello, forgot if flu shot was administered 2 months ago so wonder if ok to get it again (2 months apart) this is for an 18yr old boy?
Won't hurt: it won,t hurt and won,t do any harm. In fact, a flu vaccine given in July might not be the best fit for the 2014-15 season I recommend, if your son qualifies, the nasal spray since it provides stronger protection than the shot. Best time to vaccinate is late Sept.- early Oct. Go to HealthMapFinder to find where to take him. REMEMBER! Your whole family needs annual flu vaccine! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am having a total hip replacement in a couple of weeks and I have diabetes 2. Should i get the flu shot before.My surgery?
Why will you do that: There is no need to get two flu shots, flu shots are given once a year from october on and you should get these every year to protect yourself against flu.Only exception was h1n1 flu vaccine which was needed few years ago.But if you get two shots by error there will be no harm done. ...Read more
