  • :( Some cases sneak in every year. I hope it's less horrid than it would have been if he hadn't had the shot. I'm sorry he's sick and right before Christmas too.

  • The flu shots don't cover all strains.
    Hopefully, his flu won't be as bad as it would should he not have gotten the shot.

    I hope he feels better soon. :(

  • The nurse was talking out of her ass! They can't possibly know how many strains they'll be!
    That would be cool to know that though. :)

  • Aww. Poor little guy. I hope he feels better soon. We don't get the flu shot. Lat year my Mom got the shot & 3 days later was bed ridden for a week. Ever since they put the strains of N1H1 and other N1 strains, I don't trust it.

  • i get the flu shot for working in a school. but i have gotten a sore throat and small cough. without a flu shot i usually get a high fever and really bad cough so the severity is less and usually the cold does not last that long. In the long run it is worth it for me....

  • I have a friend who's a chiropractor and very into homeopathic stuff. He has a multitude of friends in the medical field - one of whom is in pharmaceuticals and said that this year's shot was made based on the 2 prevalent strains last year & 2009's leftover H1N1 vaccine. Now how true that is, who knows, but yeah, I just read that the other day.
