Dr. Sarah Kohl answered:

What is bird flu vaccine?

Bird Flu Vaccine

Open-uri20121230-10060-1qbszkn
Vaccine to protect against avian influenza (bird flu) also known as strain H5N1. This is different from the annual flu shot and the recent swine flu vaccine H1N1. The vaccine is kept in stockpiles for use in the event of an outbreak. Currently it is not a routine vaccine since avian flu rarely infects humans. People who work with poultry are most likely to be infected.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

Should I get the flu vaccine ?

Yes

Flu
Anyone 6 months of age or older should get a flu vaccination to help prevent catching influenza A or B, or the H1N1 swine flu. One can skip the vaccination if he is allergic to it. People at higher risk for severe influenza symptoms include pregnant women, the elderly, the immunosuppressed, asthmatics, young children and babies, etc... High-risk persons should definitely get vaccinated.

Can I get the flu from the flu vaccine?

No!

Flu
No, the flu shot is a dead vaccination and not able to pass infection. There is no live virus there to cause infection and therefore ZERO percent chance of this occuring. The NASAL flu vaccine, on the other hand, IS a live virus vaccine. However, it is engineered to die at body temperature and therefore not able to cause significant illness. It may cause runny nose and congestion but not full flu.

What are the side effects of flu vaccine?

SIDE EFFECTS

Vaccinations
I agree with my other colleagues who have answered this question. I would just like to add that there is a facet to vaccinations that one might want to educate themselves on and that is the topic of ADJUVANTS and PRESERVATIVES. The space here is too short to discuss this. I recommend going to websites like www.mercola.com and www.russellblaylockmd.com.

Dr. Scott J. Diede answered:

Could prednisone be taken after flu vaccine?

Wait a week

Flu
If possible, it is best to wait one week between the flu shot and taking prednisone. Taking it earlier can suppress the immune system and make the vaccine less effective.
