That's typical of getting a shot- and going to the dr. Se probably picked something up

Are you being serious?



There are hundreds of strains of flu. They just vaccinate against the top 3 in the last year or so. It is still possible to get the flu after you are vaccinated.

Well first off, the flu shot takes 2 weeks to work



And she was probably "infected" about a week ago, so it was in her before the flu shot

a flu shot is just a weakened strain of the virus. so by getting the shot, you are actually giving a small dose of the flu virus. slight fever is common for that reason after getting any vaccines..

101 is not really even high, just her body working.

The flu shot can cause symptoms similar to the flu. It's a law in NY that doctors have to push the flu shot. :roll: I had to sign a paper saying I declined so she can send it to the state.

The flu SHOT is a dead virus. Totally inactive. CANNOT give the flu



The nasal spray is the weakend live form of the flu

This is the first year, that I said okay for giving the flu shot.



But, doesn't the flu shot prevent her from getting the flu ? lol I am a tad bit confused...if the flu shot is preventing it & she got it, then what the f**k was the point ?

Did you read the responses...
the shot isn't effective right away (she could have already been infected).
the shot doesn't protect against all strains of the virus
a fever of 101 does not mean she has the flu

1. It takes time to work
2. It doesn't prevent all strains of the flu
3. She might not even HAVE the flu (it doesn't protect against cold or other viruses)

the flu shot doesn't protect against ALL STRAINS of the flu. just the more common ones. the vaccine changes year to year to vaccine against the top strains from the past few years.




you could get the shot, and then get a totally different strain of the flu.
also, the shot doesn't prevent you from getting the flu. it just exposes your body to the virus, to strengthen your immune system. making it more likely if you START getting the flu, your body will have antibodies already programmed to fight that strain. but of course, if you get a different strain, then you will still get sick.



ETA: i agree with the other girls. a fever of 101 doesn't mean she has the flu. she could have something else. a different virus, or even just a cold...

I read them..thanks
I said I was a tad bit confused.



& the fever is 101 under her arm, so it's really 102.
