Re: Forced flu shot without consent

Hepatitis and flu vaccines are separate injections (although the flu vaccine is for three different kinds of flu). Note that there are two types of hepatitis that have vaccines available, A and B (B is the virus that can become a permanent infection). They may be available as separate vaccines or a single vaccine for both, but never combined with flu vaccine.

So if he got one injection, then the doctor's office made a billing error by billing for both hepatitis and flu vaccines. (But you'll also want to ask the doctor's office which vaccine he actually got.)
