Question: 

I took my child aged 5yrs for the annual flu shots, the pharmacists was inexperienced and gave only half of the shot, what does that implies, will there be any side effects?

Answer: 

Please speak with the person who provided the vaccine to your child to determine if your child will need an additional dose. Side effects after the vaccine are typically mild. You can find more info here. If you have further questions, please call your local health unit and ask to speak to a public health nurse. You will find the number here.
