Infant accidently received flu shot. Help

Patient

Q: Hello. My 4 week old child was at the doctor with her mother and the doctor accidentally gave the H1N1 flu shot, that was prepared for the child's mother, to the child. What will happen to the child? Will she be ok? Will this affect her physically or mentally? Her mental development... Any information is helpful, all I can find is that children under 6 months aren't supposed to receive any kind of flu shot. Thank you

Symptoms:  diarrhea
