My son had it a few yrs ago and seemed fine, but it is a live vaccine, however it’s not supposed to give them flu. The injection on the other hand is not a live vaccine and given o people with compromised immunity.
Watching thread with interest as I don’t want dd to have the nasal spray.
I was just about to post this! My DDs had it this week, and the older one is very off colour - extremely tired and had a mild temperature yesterday. Could just be coincidence and be another virus, of course.
Has had a runny nose almost constantly for a month now which was unaffected either way by having the vaccine.
He may also possibly have experienced being hot and irritable for a while due to the vaccine, or this might just have been because he was really pissed off that I had no more banana to give him. Hard to tell.
100% better than having flu.
I got the jab and my arm was a little bit sore that night, no other symptoms.
Bb14 no your not missing anything, I’m reluctant as it shouldn’t be given to people immuno compromised or who have close contact with those who are, my dd has somethings going on health wise (separate thread) which no one knows whats causing them. which makes me wary about giving her the live nasal spray, as an aside her bf has cancer and is finally coming home in the next few weeks and they can spread the live vaccine for approx 21 days I read.
My 2 year old had it on a Thursday and his appetite decreased to nothing by the weekend and stayed that way for a few days. He had some raging temperatures at night but was otherwise fine in himself, if a bit quiet. Apparently fevers and loss of appetite are common side-effects.
Ok the girls had it about half 3 today, DD1 is absolutely fine, DD2 however is having a bloody nose which she's never had before, then 7pm was complaining of a sore neck and crying asking for her bed. I gave her some calpol and she went straight to her bed not wanting a story or a song. So totally off. Hmmmm.
