My 1 year old grandson went to the hospitable today really sick. When they called the local country medical they said they had messed up and gave him 2 hepatitis shots instead of  1 hep and 1 flu shot when he went in for shots . Will this be a problem for him.

Hi!
This is a strange co-incidence. Usually an extra dose will not cause any harm. However, the child may develop fever and an exaggerated local site reaction. Please consult his pediatrician immediately. The flu shot would need to be given after the child is well. It is advisable to give a gap of 2-4 weeks for the flu shot. However, please consult the pediatrician. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.

In some developed countries they do not  give vaccinations to children under the age of two. They think very early vaccinations can harm the immune system. The United States has the most aggressive vaccination protocol.
