Re: Question about flu vaccine
Maybe your nephew has a flu that you once had and you won't be getting it again.
They won't give you the flu shot if you're sick.
Even if you get the flu shot, it won't prevent you from getting it. They only immunise you against the 3 most dangerous and affluent ones every year. There are over a hundred different flu viruses. If we've had a flu shot, we can still get one of the three, but we won't get it as bad and we probably won't die from it.
The one that's out now...can't remember which one that has already been responsible for some deaths, which isn't included in the flu shot, will be somewhat protected against if we did get a shot. The body's defenses will provide the same scenario.....not as bad and not likely to kill.
Flu is very dangerous to anyone who is compromised such as children, eldery, cancer patients, AIDS patients, those with asthma or respiritory disorders, anyone on immunosuppressing meds...etc.
I think the flu's incubation period is 2 - 3 days....but that's easily checked out on the internet.
I hope you don't have it...and if you're still well, go for the shot if you're really worried about it.
