Flu vaccine

My son had the flu vaccine nasal spray at school on Thursday and has a sore throat and feels unwell. Am I at more risk than usual of catching flu? Avoiding him isn’t an option. He’s 13 but has autism.

@hartleybear , this is probably just an immediate side effect of the nasal spray and should clear up quickly.

But, having MS, you are now considered as vulnerable to the effects of flu and eligible for a free flu jab. You should contact your surgery about getting this.

It is recommended for MSers
