Did once... never will again!
Well, you should still get the flu shot for your boys! It's always a bit of a guessing game as to which strains will be prevalent that year, but there was an A and B strain in it this year, I think...hopefully him having had the shot will at least make it less severe for him. The flumist (nasal) is actually way more effective than the shot too, unfortunately our boys can't get that one.
Hope your son feels better soon! Did they put him on Tamiflu or anything?
Joshua's only had the flu shot once, 4 years ago. He was really sick after the shot took effect. He hadn't been sick like that before and he hasn't since. Maybe he's just blessed with a high immune system?
No get the shot. You can't get Flu from the shot, you can though from Flumist. You can get flu 2 weeks after the shot as it needs time to work. If, exposed in that time you can get sick. It is proven, safe.
