I wonder how common getting sick after having a flu shot is? All the folks I've known who got the flu shot were sick way more often during flu season, in addition to the funky reactions they had to the shot itself.
In fact, the only person I've personally known who's had the flu this year actually DID have a shot a few weeks ago. She felt kind of run down that day, she said, but then a couple weeks later started getting sick. She was in the bed sick for about 8 days and felt pretty cruddy a couple more days afterward. She has no immunity issues and doesn't work, but her doc still recommended one. She's one of those people who trusts every single word her doctor says as gospel and her response was just that it probably would have been 'way worse' had she not had the shot. Oh well. To each their own I s'pose. As I had already stated, no shot for me.
