In brief: Possibly

But the risk of the h1n1 flu triggering a seizure is much higher. Immunization is better.

In brief: Possible but...

Individuals with unstable seizure disorders do have a small risk of seizure when getting h1n1 flu shot.
However, the risk to develop severe flu and die from the consequence outweighed the risk of seizure flare-up.
