Answer #1

Flu is dangerous for people with certain health conditions or weakened immune system . It  is important to distinguish influenza from the flu. It's important that the flu shot only prevents influenza . The strains of influenza that are put into the flu shots are killed viruses. The flu shot doesn't cause the flu. It takes about 2 weeks for the body to bulid protection after the shot , so some are getting sick just before or during that time period .
