I'm not sure if any of you can help with this but I'm struggling to find an answer elsewhere. My 2.5 year old son has been offered a flu vaccination this year. I'm more than happy for him to have it but as baby 2 is due any second (hopefully!) I just wanted to check that there would be no problem for him to have the vaccine and be around a newborn immediately? I know it's a live vaccine which can cause some minor side effects to Max but I'm not sure if that means that he could pass it on to the baby, or what the ramifications of that could be.
Obviously I'll ask the nurse these questions before he's vaccinated but that means waiting until the appointment and I'd like to find out before! Apologies if this is a really ignorant question!
