Those with the flu already this season?

For those of you who are currently going thru the flu, either you or your household...

Did you get the vaccine?

My 3-yo got both shots over a month ago, and she came down with it this weekend. The CDC hasn't reported any new strands yet.

  • Are you talking about a stomach bug that causes vomiting & diarrhea, or influenze, which is what the shot is for? The vaccine does not prevent a person from getting influenza, it just makes it so if the person gets a strain that the shot covers it will be a milder case, it does not cover the vomiting stomach bugs.

  • No, not a stomach bug. She tested positive for the flu. She's on Tamaflu, which appears to be helping.
