Can A Baby Runny Nose Get Influenza Immunization?
Tonight I asked my child aged 7 months over 2 weeks tomorrow, the second influenza immunization schedule, but only recently had a cold, could it be immunized?
Good evening Badzlina Princess, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Contraindications to influenza vaccine include: age less than 6 months, a history of egg allergy, a history of severe allergic reactions to the same vaccine before, a history of guillain barre syndrome within 6 weeks after the previous vaccine, and are in moderate / severe pain. Mild conditions are not a contraindication to influenza vaccination (the child's condition must be assessed objectively by a physical examination by a doctor).
It is advisable to consult with your doctor first so that the doctor can examine the child and assess whether a child's runny nose is a problem or not for administering an influenza vaccine. There are two types of influenza vaccines: live attenuated vaccines and inactivated vaccines. In children less than 5 years who have a history of recurrent wheezing / shortness of vaccine should be given an inactive type of vaccine.
