What the Expert Says:

Generally, no.  If she is well and has a healthy immune system, she would process this as a booster to any illness.  Let her doctor know and ask her to discuss this with you.

It is unfortunate that the news is not relaying the truth about the possible side effects to just about anybody.  Perhaps looking through articles that vaccination liberation or ph miracle living has will give you some answers that no one wants to discuss.  Children are most vulnerable and who knows what the negative results will be until it happens.  No doctor can guarantee what your child will react to--it is a chance that anyone will take just to take those vaccines.  Flu is not exception.  Health never comes in a shot--without something happening afterwards.  Even antibiotics have a risk--read those pamphlets the pharmacy gives you--all medicines have risk.
