Doctor insights on:
Vomiting After Flu Vaccine
Yes: People who are sensitive to vaccines or the adjuvants in them can react and vomiting is a possibility. It is more likely to be associated with the vaccine reaction if it occurs right after or within 24 hours in my experience. Some people experience fever, fatigue, irritability, or just not feeling well after vaccines.
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
Nonspecific.: The sight of the needle can cause "mild vomiting" all by itself.
Varies by Location: If you have insurance it is covered by most insurance without any copay and is available at most drug stores like CVS/WALGREN and others. Also available at your doctor' office If you have no insurance it may cost you approx. 25 to 30 dollars in NJ. Price may vary in other states
SIDE EFFECTS: 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.See 1 more doctor answer
Flu shot likely ok: Buserelin is a medication that is a chemical which alters the secretion of certain hormones from the pituitary gland. Getting a flu shot should be fine. If one is interested in getting a FluMist nasal live-virus flu vaccine, he should ask the doctor prescribing the buserelin whether or not the nasal vaccine would change the absorption of buserelin nasal spray.
Not likely: Vaccinations are not mandatory and except in a national emergency, government is not likely to mandate vaccination.
Yes: 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.See 1 more doctor answer
Hardly any: Flu vaccine is very safe. Vast majority of people will have nothing worse than a slightly sore upper arm. Even if you get the flu later in the season it's likely to be mild. It's recommended for nearly everyone. Pregnant women are strongly encouraged to get the flu shot because they are more susceptible to complications including death. People who have chronic conditions should get it too.See 2 more doctor answers
Bird Flu Vaccine: 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.
