My friend just got the flu shot and she is in the hospital

My friend is 38, was very healthy. They were giving out free flu shots at the office today and she said that she will take it to protect her 8 year old daughter. We were working at our desks about 2 hours later and she suddenly fell out of the chair. By the time the ambulance came she was barely breathing. She is in the ICU now on life support and the doctor said that her situation is unsure until tomorrow morning.
My request is that you pray for her to survive this terrible ordeal.

  • I'm sorry, I hope she'll be ok.

    I've had 3 friends just in the last month get the flu FROM the flu shot! NO flu shots for my family!

  • I'm so sorry i will pray for her! I had my flu shot about 2 weeks ago and so far i've been ok but that is scary. I don't think i'm going to have my kids get the flu shot. I hope she get's better. Has the dr. said what caused it? PM me if you need to talk. I am sorry again :(
