My name is Sharon and my 9 year old is in the process of being diagnosed with epilepsy. As a matter of fact, we go this Friday to find out the results of her prolonged video EEG....during which she did have another seizure.
Anyway, she is due to have a flu shot at her pediatrician's office next week and I was wondering if she can still get it. The reason I'm asking is when I went to get my flu shot last week, they asked if I had seizures. Is there something in the flu shot that could possiblt trigger a seizure?
I will, of course, be asking her neurologist Friday about this, but I was curious if anyone knew anything about this.
Thank you for any info you may have!
