Flu shots are capable of giving you a minor case of the flu, I would not doubt it at all if it axed your energy.

 

And my wife wonders why I keep skipping out on them every year...

Spoiler alert: I never get them, they're just an educated guess of what this year's flu mutation will look like and is just as likely to make you sick as anything.

You can't get the flu from the flu shot. The virus is dead. That's like saying a dead wolf attacked you.

 

My understanding is vaccines are created from a dead or weakened virus. However, I have heard of cases of people getting sick--flu-like symptoms--within a day of getting the vaccine. Correlation not causation perhaps, but the risk plus the fact it's useless for next year because the darn virus adapts quickly rendering current antibodies ineffective at blocking the latest mutation...the "cure" may or may not be worse than the possibility of getting the disease, but seems to me it's darn close since you're not even guaranteed immunity.

Y'ALL - the flu shot is a combination of the 3 or 4 most common strains likely to spread in America that year - based on research and past trends. You are right, it is not a guarantee that you won't get sick. BUT it is not JUST FOR YOU! Getting a flu shot helps prevent you from being a carrier and giving the flu to someone who has a much weaker immune system - children, the elderly, people with chronic diseases that compromises their immune system. If you won't get it for yourself - get it for the sweet old lady down the street.

This, this, and more this. Even if you get a mild form of the flu and aren't screwed by it, you're a carrier. Those around you can catch it from you and have a worse reaction. Babies and the elderly can die from it. It's not a question of if you want to take the risk of getting the flu by not getting vaccinated, it's a question of whether you're willing to pass it on and possibly kill someone by not getting vaccinated.

At the risk of beating a dead horse, I'm one of those people that the flu can kill. I'm not as cute as a sweet old lady though, yet. But I'd like to get to sweet old lady age. You should see me at the gym, basically bathing myself in hand sanitizer every other lift.

Wow, thats a lot of unique beers,  I do not know what "Pliny'd" is, so no.

 

You said "North Bay" and "beer" (and mentioned Heroine) so I figured you'd be familiar.  Pliny the Younger from Russian River Brewing in Santa Rosa.

Side benefit of hand sanitizer... serves as a good base for chalk.  Improves my grip noticeably. ;)

Then that dead wolf got me.

I more likely got sick when I went to the medical complex early on a week day during prime old people going time.  Or when I went to my mom's retirement clubhouse for lunch.  Or, as my wife likes to remind me (as she's in full panic mode,)  that I was sick this time last year and conveniently missed valentines day.

My wife has gotten the mild flu like symptoms for a few hours after one.  It's hard to compare that to the actual crap out your eyeballs flu

 

yeah, I was having trouble figuring it out too.  I'm just really really fatigued and a sore throat.  How many cals in cough drops?  cause I'm eating them like candy.

I find blood work more taxing than flu shots. But maybe I'm a weirdo

 

This has been confusing the matter for sure.

I will have to remember this the next time I have an adult beverage.
