Dr. Dan,
I had my 2 year old daughter vaccinated for the flu last week. She became sick that very night with a viral infection (vomiting, fever, sore and swollen throat.) Can you tell me if that has any consequence on the effectiveness of the vaccine?

Sorry, I know this is the FIRST year board, but I've noticed you bring this topic up before, and I feel that flu shots are important.

That's okay. I'm so sorry that she is sick

Her new illness should not have any impact on the effectiveness of her flu vaccine. It would be good to let your doctor know that she is not feeling well though.

Hope she feels better soon

Dr. Dan

Great thanks! Her doctor is up to speed with everything that's going on, I just forgot to ask my question while we were there!
