heard a patient say
"I am not going to get a flu shot, I get the flu when I take the vaccine."
The person that I was working with didn't educate the patient like she should have, what should you tell a patient?
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 .
