I had never had the flu shot until last year.
I had also never had the flu until last year.
I went for a check up and was told that they were giving away tetanus shots for free that week. Well, because I was starting school in the Fall and
mine was out of date I signed the paperwork and got it. This was also around the time that they were recommending flu shots and they asked me if I
wanted one as well. I said no, because..well, why? I went through a major flu epidemic at my HS without ever getting it when over 2/3 of our school
was out sick...don't fix what isn't broken.
I got incredibly sick within 3 days of leaving there. I thought it might just be a viral infection so I tried to shake it off with home remedies but
nothing helped me. I was back in the hospital after a week or so and was told I had in fact come down with the flu. It was shocking to me.
Fast forward a few months to just a week before school started. I had finally received my vaccination paperwork from my college and was going to go
back to my doctor to get paperwork signed and verified that I was up to date. They asked me if I wanted a tetanus shot. I explained I had one in March
and they said "No...we gave you your flu shot in March." I couldn't believe that. I had specifically told them no, yet they went around me and gave
it to me anyway.
Now, I don't believe this was a conspiracy. It may have been a mix up of paperwork - and I truly wish I would've kept my documents proving I only
signed on for a tetanus shot. It's just incredible to me that after all these years of never even having a hint of the flu, the week I get the shot,
I got the flu.
