Given double dose of seasonal flu vaccine

Two weeks ago I got a seasonal flu vaccine. Today I was supposed to get the H1N1 vaccine, but by mistake was given another seasonal flu shot. I'm worried about the double dose! What problems could occur from this mistake?

Re: Given double dose of seasonal flu vaccine

Did u realize this after you left the clinic or did they notice while there and if they did did you ask them? i don't know what would happen because it is a dead virus but i am by far not an expert. In canada we have a health link # we can call to ask questions like this by a nurse...i don't think you have it there BUT you could call your family Dr and ask the nurse there or call a hospital and ask them they should be able to tell you...or search the net maybe.
