No and no flu shot. Proof positive not to get the shot.  :)

No. But wife knows few family members that did get the shot and still got the flu this season.

Typically less severe if you have the shot.

The doctor told one of those family members , that this year they have way more flu cases with people that got the shot then last few years.

I got the flu shot but its all a guess that they picked the right strain to fight and if they guessed wrong then you can still get the flu even with the shot

I got the shot. No cost and got $5 of free groceries, so, no-brainer :)

No flu, but I got a cold last week and I still have the cough that came with it lingering around.

No shot, no flu, and $280 of groceries from stop&shop.
I'm not who you think I am.

Does the free GC have anything to do with the flu?...

No but they did offer free shots. Does that count?  :)
ETA: DW and kids did get the shot.

Same, and those who didn't get the shot didn't get the flu either...
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Just for you.  :)
Is it possible to determine if the flu shot actually caused someone to get the flu?

My daughter works in an urgent care. One night she came home and said she had 40 patients with the flu not one was vaccinated. She says most (over 95%) of flu cases she is seeing are from people who didnt get the shot.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

There are a fee different strains of the flu. Even you had a shot for strain A, it won't help you for Strain B.
I got the flu shot but its all a guess that they picked the right strain to fight and if they guessed wrong then you can still get the flu even with the shot

Everyone in family got the flu ( strain B) except me. This was caused by a girl that came to school with the flu....Most of the kids got the flu followed by their family members.

Then a few weeks later 2 of my kids got the flu ( strain A )

I got a severe case of the Flu very early in the season (late October). Never had anything like it before, I was knocked out so badly that I couldn't go to shul.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
