When getting a flu shot can you still get sick?

About 5 days ago I got a flu shot and for the past 3 days I feel like I am coming down with something but nothing happens I guess that is a good thing.
I just wish it would just pass me by. I don't want to get sick. Not even alittle.

  • Yup! Lots of people still get one form or another after getting a flu shot. Sorry. Hope you feel better soon.

  • Yes. The flu shot only protects you from the head-cold kind of flu (supposed to anyways), it doesn't protect you frmo the stomach flu...not at all. We don't get the flu shot...kinda pointless in my opinion.

  • Yeah, you usually DO get the flu.

    I dont get it because i think its pointless.

    Generally you GET the flu a few days after you get the shot. Who's to say you would have gotten it if you didnt get the shot?

    no one.
