While most healthy people suffer few complications from the flu, it can be deadly for pregnant women, babies and children, the elderly and those with weak immune systems.

I just got a Fluvirin influenza shot and I am stinging and itching in my arms and face. Is this a reaction and will it go away?

I just got a Fluvirin influenza shot and I am stinging and itching in my arms and face. Is this a reaction and will it go away?

Yes and yes, however: Yes, this is likely an adverse reaction to the vaccine. While itching and redness near the injection site is common, reactions in distant areas like your face are signs of a systemic allergic reaction. Try Benadryl and Vit. C. Based on this reaction I advise you to not get flu shots in the future, esp. since they have minimal benefits. See http://tinyurl.com/py6xtc8 & http://tinyurl.com/qcbvvoa ...Read more

1 year girl, got flu after
influenza shot. She has cold, fever and nose runs for weeks. Help?

Likely unrelated: Only the living nasal flu vaccine is capable of triggering some form of flu like symptoms.The shot is dead material that some can have a reaction to but not an infection.Fever lasting weeks is likely a more significant issue like an ear infection. She needs to see a health professional for proper diagnosis/treatment. ...Read more

Got sick about week ago. Had chills/fever at night. Woke up better, had to get influenza shot (military) week later.. Still sore throat l/cough mucus?

Mgt: Your illness may still be caused by influenza. Other possible causes include Strep throat. I would suggest having a Strep screening test. At this point,Tamiflu is not likely to be needed. If you have any respiratory difficulty such as shortness of breath, please see the ED. ...Read more

How do you boost 3 y.O. Immune system? Up to date on shots but has had influenza a & b. Similar symptoms again. On singular and daily vitamin.

Maybe stop singulair: It's very frustrating to have a sick kid, one with allergies or asthma, or any chronic illness. There are drawbacks from any medication, but one of the adverse effects from singulair can be an increased risk of viral illness. You should consider talking to your doctor about a different allergy medication. ...Read more

Ok so I have the influenza B virus had flu shot so has my 5 year old so if she did contract it would symptoms be milder?

Ok so I have the influenza B virus had flu shot so has my 5 year old so if she did contract it would symptoms be milder?

MAYBE: Every year a number of flu strains circle the globe and various sites keep track and report their activity. Vaccine makers pick 3-4 strains in early spring to put in the fall shot, based on those with the most activity.Too many strains would weaken the individual strength against each strain.With luck, the vaccine will boost general flu immunity enough to make it mild for those who get it anyway ...Read more

Aprox 80% effective: First the flu shot takes 3 weeks to build full immunity so next year take it late october this way when the season starts ( nov in the ne) you are ready. Influenza affects about 20% of the population an the vaccine gives about 80% immunity if correctly paired to the current strain. In your case you did get flu but had some immunity since it was mild.
