Reaction to flu vaccine
6yr old grandson had flu shot and 2days later sick with flu and bad ear infection. Doctor looked and checked ears the day of shot said he was okay. Could he be having a reaction from the vaccine?
It is unlikely to be a reaction to the flu vaccine. It could be a viral or bacterial upper respiratory infection.
