In my opinion...I never get the flu shot I mean it's basically the flu being injected into you to create antibodies and such I did once and ironically came down with the flu lol
Not taking a chance again with work now lol
Good luck and enjoy the shot i
In my break room where there is a sign up sheet for the flu thing on the general whiteboard (I don't know if you have one)
Yes...you are injected with a inactive form of the flu virus. And its only a certain number of flu strains. Its not overall protection of against all strains of the flu.
Some theories say that if you are a flu carrier but not fully blown infected, and get the shot, you will get the full flu.
You're injected with an inactivated form of the virus. Just like you didn't get tetanus when you got your tetanus shot, measles when you got your mmr shot, or hepatitis when you got your round of hepatitis vaccines.
The easiest way to describe it: getting the flu from the flu shot is like getting bit by a dead dog.
However, the vaccine only protects against the most common strains of the flu, so there's still a chance you could get a less common strain. However, you're not going to get the flu as a consequence of the shot.
