I am asking question on behalf of my niece. My niece is 2.8 years old. Considering the present situation regarding corona virus, can we give a flu shot to her irrespective from her normal vaccination schedule. Also, I want to ask you for a suggestion regarding a travel to do and also meeting a person who came from US. One of her aunt came from US recently, so my sister and my niece were actually planned to meet her but we came to know that she got fever and vomting after she came to India but she told that she is doing fine now but we were in dilemma to send my sister and niece to her in this little confusion kind of period where we do not know what decision to make. So please suggest which you feel good option.
I understand your concern. Yes, definitely you should give a shot of flu vaccine which will protect from getting infected. It gives protection for a year. Regarding meeting someone having a fever with international travel history, my opinion is you should avoid the meeting and wait at least 2 weeks till no fever and other symptoms.
Thank you doctor,
So can we give a flu shot below 3 years? And regarding meeting her aunt. Her aunt recovered from fever but she looks tired it seems and she will complete 14 days period by tomorrow.
