    Hello to you all. I am an (adult) internist about to administer flu vaccine to my 2 year old. Long story short, their pediatrician ran out and I obtained vaccine from my own adult clinic. Double checked dosing with the pediatrician but forgot to ask: is it given in the thigh like other immunizations? Any peds out there? Thanks!

    Yes it is. It’s given IM in the thigh…aspirating first (to avoid IV injection). I’m not a pediatrician…but I do know how the flu vaccine is given to toddlers. 🙂
