This is Dr. David

many things can affect IgG levels

yes, taking a flu shot in some cases can affect your IgG levels.

it is completely normal for your IgG levels to go up and down depending on your body's immune system to help fight off infections.

your body's immune system works behind the scenes to help keep you healthy.
