Like all medication, there are some people who are just not allowed to take them. It may be due to several complications. Here are a few reasons why a person cannot receive the flu vaccine from their Local Pharmacy in Texas.
- The patient is younger than 6 months, which is too young to receive the vaccine
- The patient has a severe, life-threatening allergy to flu vaccine or other ingredients included in the vaccine (e.g., gelatin, antibiotics, etc.)
- The patient has a history of Guillain-Barré syndrome (a severe paralytic illness, also called GBS) that occurred after receiving influenza vaccine
- The patient has a fever when they go to their usual Pharmacy in Grand Prairie, Texas to get their flu shot
For safer administration, talk to your doctor or other health care provider about whether or not you should get vaccinated. It is best to get a professional’s opinion, to avoid accidents and other complications.
