Q.

Flu Injection

Hi Professor,

In an earlier post, you suggested that I wait until my son is 1 year old, to give him the flu injection. He is now 1 and winter is coming to an end. Do you think it is worth while giving it to him? He does have a 3 year old brother who brings home all sorts of bugs from creche.

Thank you for your time.

At this stage of winter it is not really necessary to give your son the flu injection.Just keep him on an immune booster through winter such as Creche Guard.
