Can a family doctor administer a vaccine for children?

You won't get the flu, but you may get a fever and some cold symptoms similar to when children get their immunizations. Your body is just responding appropriately to make antibodies against the virus. Not all people experience this and I suppose that if it's your 1st shot, your reaction may be more pronounced. I and my family get it every year and we

This sounds more like the hydration. And you need to check and see if you're drinking enough water. Also, depends on whether or not you are having any other symptoms. Are you having burning when you urinate? Are you urinating frequently? Do you urinate and think that you're finishing then when you stand up you have to urinate again (hesitancy)? I would 1st try to hydrate yourself very well and then see if it continues.
