My 12 months baby got an adult flu shot and a baby flu shot ?

My 12 months baby got an adult flu shot and a baby flu shot ?

Oops!: I assume this was an error. Injectable flu vaccine is a killed virus vaccine. Your baby will not get the flu from it. Because there is more antigen in the adult form of vaccine your baby may have more antibody response--fever, aches, fussiness. If your baby got a multidose vial flu it was likely preserved with some thimerosol. This has a little mercury in it. I would talk to the dr about that. ...Read more
