My FIl/MIL will look after DD tonight.
He was going to get his flu shot this morning.
She is having major surgery next week.
Does the flu shot shed the virus-or is that only vax's that do that?
TIA

The flu shot IS a vax. But that said, the flu SHOT is killed. If they get the shot it won't shed. The flu MIST is live. If they get the flu mist it will shed.
