Q:

hi which illiness will a baby b protected from if flu shots is given for 6 plus month babies?



Sonali Shivlani

The flu vaccine protects against 4 common strains of influenza. It has to be repeated every year. It does not give protection against the many other cough and cold viruses that are prevalent and your baby could still contract those. Do discuss the same with your doctor and take a decision accordingly.
