  • you shouldn't. some people who get the shot do get sick because it is putting a live virus in your system. my hubby is active duty air force and they give them the flumist. it goes in the nose and it always makes my hubby pretty sick. the only reason one of the little ones would get sick is if they are under a year.

  • It's a myth people. It's not a live virus they are giving you. You will not get sick and if you it's just a coincidence. Good grief

  • yes! everyone i know who gets that darn thing, gets the flu shortly afterward, and usually 10x worse than if they just risked it in the first place. i never get that thing and have not had the flu in 3 years!
