About 4 years ago, I got the flu shot, and about 2 months later, got the flu. The flu shot only prevents about 40% or so infections, and their are different strains of the flu; Influenza type A and influenza type B. You get the shot for what the experts feel are most prevalent for that year. Although I got the flu, I got onto TheraFlu right away, and my flu only lasted 3 days. I was fine after that. My thought is that both taking TheraFlu and getting the flu shot helped lessen the length of my illness. But when I got the flu, it was like a car fell on top of me. Actually it a total crap shoot they base it on the what the Flu was in Australia. They never get it right as there are tons of strains. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
