Is it necessary to have RSV vaccine in heart condition?

My son is 2yrs old w/ a heart condition should he still get the RSV vaccine? He is immune compromised slightly (gets vaccines though) but caught the RSV virus last winter after being vaccinated the previous season.

Vaccine info: http://vaccineinfo.net/immunization/vaccine/rsv/index.shtml Definately speak to his doctor about it. My son had it when he was a baby (know how scary it can be). Hope your little guy makes it though the season safely.

there was a bat in our new student house a week ago, I had been living in the house a month prior to my house mate living in, he was scratched by the bat and went in for treatment. Unfortunately we did not keep the bat for tests. A week later, my throat is very sore, and my girlfriend has red spots on her body (not many). It is possible that the bat had eaten from a box of cookies that was open and in the same cupboard as the bat; however I am unsure how long the bat was in there for, and the cookies have been in there for 2 weeks (1 week prior to my friends scratch). I am also unsure if we ate the cookies since they were in that specific cupboard. What are the chances of us having rabies? The bat did not seem rabid, when we caught it, it was hissing, but I think it was scared because it was covered by a bowl. Are we just being hypochondriacs? or should we get rabies shots. When is it too late to receive treatment? I understand that rabies are very fatal. Thank you for your time, Matt

Hello! This is my situation, My brother was attacked by our own dog on his head, near the parietal area. I have checked the area myself and there were no cuts at all. I have only noticed a slight swelling on the area. Our dog is up to date with his shots. The thing is, 2 days after, my brother developed fever and headache. I am not sure if it is because of the attack or just a coincedence with the bad weather that we have right now. Should we have him vaccinated or not necessarily and we will just observe some more? So far, i haven t seen anything unusual with regards to our dogs behavior. Thank you so much. i hope I ll get a response.

My 11 month old daughter, who has had a flu shot, was playing at a friends house Sunday. Today my friend took her child to the dr with a fever and a nasal swab said she had the flu. Can my daughter get the flu? If so, how long does it take for the symptoms and what should I watch for or what should I do? Also, can my daughter be contagious now? Do I need to keep her from other children?

Hi for over a week now my 11 year old son has been complaining of back pain. I can see no bruising or any sign of having been bumped. He says it hurts when he coughs, bends, twist. He does have asthma but has had a flu jab last week, where his chest was checked and was clear. He says it aches really bad down the top half of your spine, is it a pulled muscle.
