Nope. I just took it like a man. I refuse to do the vaccine thing. If my own immune system and self care with a good diet can't handle it, then whatever will be will be.

I'm curious, did you get vaccinated?
My understanding is that this year's vaccine is only supposed to be 10% effective. However, when first getting vaccinated a person's immune system goes into overdrive to fight the disease in the vaccine. This lessens the body's ability to fight other diseases and a recent study estimates that a person receiving the vaccine will be 5 times more likely to contract another respiratory ailment in the immediate aftermath of vaccination (ie 5-7 days).
Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) discovered a newly emerged superbug, hyper-resistant and hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae, which may cause untreatable and fatal infections in relatively healthy individuals
Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) were #ing around with genetically engineered viral templates & accidentally dropped a vial just at the wrong moment, a split second when the safety protocols were not properly enforced (for some reason no one will admit to), leading to the release of a newly created superbug, hyper-resistant and hypervirulent an efficient & force-multiplying bioweapon of warfare Klebsiella pneumoniae named after Barry Klebs, the intern who we decided to scapegoat for the incident; we're saying it's for dropping a can of coke in the lab, which "appears to have prevented the sealing of an emergency airlock" - we figured that'd do the trick, which will cause crippling &/or life altering &/or unending pain &/or general suffering and (mercifully) fatal (if you're lucky) infections in healthy enemy soldiers

A Mayo Clinic study indicates that many hospitalized influenza patients shed flu virus for at least 7 days after they fall ill, suggesting that the current recommendation to use infection control precautions for 5 days may be inadequate.
In the study, one type of test showed that 22 of 41 patients were still shedding the virus 7 days or longer after the onset of their illness, according to the report in Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology. Another testing method showed that 12 of the 41 patients were still infective at 7 days or later.
Live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) is a type of influenza vaccine in the form of a nasal spray that used to be recommended to prevent influenza. In June 2016 the CDC stopped recommending the use of LAIV as its effectiveness has appeared to have decreased between 2013 and 2016.
