The kind that is a shot in the arm, not the flu mist. The shot cannot give you the flu.
Many people mistake a cold for the flu. They come around during the same season.
The flu shot is not 100% effective, and you can get the flu even if you have had the shot, just be aware that the flu shot did not give you the flu. It will always be important to wash your hands.
Anyways, that's all. I don' t care whether you get the flu shot or not, I just want the facts straight.
End the myth, kwim.
Also to note, the "stomach flu" is not influenza. People just use flu as a catchall phrase for when they get sick in the winter time. If you have vomiting and diahrea with no fever, its probably not influenza.
