if most people I know get the flu right after anyway?

Is it just a method of controlling when you get the flu?

The way I see it thats not really helpful...

I got the flu shot once and got the flu immediately afterwards and it was awful. I also got it 3 more times that year so apparently it didn't work for me.

Never in the nearly 20 years I've been getting one for myself and the last 10 for my whole family have we, or any one I know gotten the flu after getting the shot.
