Is it harmful to have more than one flu shot?

My mother has become so forgetful and confused I can't let her go anywhere without me. She claims she had a flu shot at a grocery store clinic. I wasn't aware of it, she says I was in a different part of the store. I can't find a receipt, patient information folder, etc.... I don't think she had one and would like her to get one to be protected. Just in case she really did get one -- would it be harmful to have another?

Re: Is it harmful to have more than one flu shot?

Getting it twice shouldn't do much harm. And it takes about 20 minutes for the nurse or pharmacist to prepare the shot, I doubt she could have gotten it while you were in another part of the store, unless you were there a long time.
