Resolved Question:

Hi,My 5 years old son will be having the flu jab (nasal spray). I know that it is a weakened but live virus. I also have a 6 months old daughter. I want to find out whether he will be contagious enough to infect his sister?

Please rest assured, the vaccination will not harm his sister. The Flu shot contains an inactivated virus which is only supposed to confer immunity to the individual who is injected and is not harmful or contagious to people, babies around that person.

Hope this helps.
