Every parent wants to do the best for their child, and give them the care and support they need. In most cases, giving your child the flu shot to prevent an illness will result in no injuries. In some cases, a child may have a minor allergic reaction to the vaccine. In the rarest of cases, a baby can develop a serious and life-threatening injury as a result of a vaccine.
In some lines of work, employers may try to push employees to get a flu vaccine. This is especially true in the medical profession. Many nurses, across the U.S., are forced to get the flu vaccine each year.
