Influenza vaccination

Hello I have a 3y little boy with cystic fibrosis who must be vaccinated against influenza. He has a runny nose right now. Can he be vaccinated despite that?
Thank you for your answer. Best regards
While it is important to vaccinate people with cystic fibrosis there is no urgency. You can wait a few days to verify that your little boy is not incubating an infectious disease.
Furthermore, if your boy has a runny nose but no other gastrointestinal, respiratory or systemic (fever, fatigue) symptoms, I think there is no risk to vaccine him.
Best wishes
