Can You Drink After Getting A Flu Shot
It is possible but:
I think any shot or treatment etc. Should be with held unless the person is not intoxicated and unable to understand why the shot is being given and cnsent for the same
as long as one is drinking and I smell the alcohol I refuse to give flu shot or any other treatment till the person is sober to understand the reason for flu or any other shot or treatment. Only exception is life saving emergency. ...Read more
Also known as influenza vaccines, flu shots are given out once a year to protect against the flu. The flu shot stimulates the immune system to build antibodies to three or four strains of flu viruses in the hopes that it will offer protection from the current strains present in the community. Each year the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) monitors the strains of Influenza globally and incorporates the appropriate antigens in the new vaccine. For best protection the vaccine ...Read more

Drinking what?: There isn't any drink that one can buy at the grocery store or liquor store that will alter the effectiveness of a flu shot. The only things would be medications such as prednisone syrup from the pharmacy. So, if one is drinking prednisone syrup or other immunosuppressant drugs, let the doctor know so he can adjust the timing of the flu shot in case the shot should be done earlier or later. ...Read more

She got the hives a day after her flu shot. Both her pediatrician and allergist said it's not from the shot (that was the only new thing in her life) one gave her a steroid drink (didn't work) and another gave her some chewing pills (didn't work).?
Rare but possible: The CDC states "Any medication can cause a severe allergic reaction...estimated at about 1 in a million doses, and would happen within a few minutes to a few hours after the vaccination." Your child (age?) may have had a milder allergic reaction to the vaccine, or something else. Rx steroid and antihistamine like Benadryl. Any new detergent or fabric softener? Those pills were? Directions? ...Read more
Thigh muscles ache/twitch after flu shot 4 days ago. Took blood labs no abnormalities. Neuro test reflexes/strength successfully. Told to rest legs and drink plenty of fluids, in 2 weeks emg. Opinions?
Sounds accurate: Cannot imagine a neurologic reaction to flu vaccine except that there have been some cases of guillion-barre syndrome (a form of ascending paralysis) associated rarely with vaccinations. The recommendation you received is good as long as you follow up quickly if you are not getting better and definitely if you develop any other symptoms. ...Read more

How long do I need to wait to get the tdap shot after getting a flu shot? Also when are they effective?
Recently read an article that discussed the danger of getting a flu shot too early. How early is too early? I usually get mine late Sept/early Oct.
Your decision: If you belong to a vulnerable health group, such as elderly (65+) or/and have chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, lung disease, immune system disorder, asthma or any lung condition, you should get vaccinated. Also, if you liver or care for people with above conditions and they may catch it from you, you want to protect them by getting the shot. Otherwise, it is your decision. ...Read more
NOW!: Get it as soon as possible when available. Winter is flu season but according to the cdc when it occurs ; how long it lasts is variable. Sometimes flu outbreaks can begin as early as october. Over the last 30 years the peak flu month has most often been february. ...Read more
Yes: If there's no specific reason your child shouldn't receive the shot, like an allergy, then, yes, most definitely. Flu shots can be given yearly after 6 months of age. Not giving the shot is not the same as not taking a risk; you're just accepting the much larger risk of getting the illness and a serious complication. Besides hygiene/clean water, nothing compares with vaccines for health value. ...Read more
Flu isn't innocent: The flu shot is highly effective at preventing not only you from getting the flu, but from you spreading it about. Most who get the flu have high fevers, coughing, and vomiting and misery. A large group get pneumonia, and about 36k die in this country every year. Those with infants under 6mo have to get the shot so baby doesn't get it. Infants are especially susceptible to bad consequences. ...Read more
Confusing question: Not all strains of flu make it into the vaccine so some may get a flu from one of these other strains even if they got a "flu" shot early on. You can also have a mild to moderate systemic reaction to the vaccine if you are allergic to eggs or any other component in the vaccine. Last but not least, you can get ill from something unrelated to the flu shot that you were incubating when you got it. ...Read more
Home Health Care:
If you are home bound and receive home health care, your md can ask your home health care nurse to bring one when she/he visits.
If you are not home bound, I do not know of a service that would come to your home. However, many employers offer flu vaccines at the office. ...Read more
Influenza vaccine: The high dose influenza vaccine can be used for people who are 65 and older. Recent studies indicated that it was 24.2% more effective in preventing influenza in this population. I would get it when it is available to the public each year. ...Read more
Reality: The flu virus is well known for mutating frequently which makes prior vaccines less helpful. There are also 4-6+ strains circulating the globe at any point and air travel spreads them easily. Each year they pick the top 3-4 strains (by frequency) & put them into the shot. More would weaken strength for individual strains. If you get the shot every year (I do) you increase your chances for it to work ...Read more
