Question: I don’t get the flu shot because I got the flu from it once. But my doctors says that's not possible. What do you think?
Dr. Hibberd's answer:
It is not possible to get the flu from the killed influenza virus in a flu shot. You may, however, get nuisance flu-like symptoms after any vaccine that usually lasts no more than two or three days.
But those symptoms are much better than the potentially life-threatening complications and tremendous work loss and suffering seen quite often with influenza.
