Looking for advice from a healthcare professional or thoughts about the flu vaccine. Never got one but after reading about all the hospitalization and deaths I am considering taking my young kids to get one. Do the vaccines actually work, what is to be expected, and did you get one? Ive heard stories of people actually getting sicker more often aftwr getting one. Not really down with antivaccine crap. All our immunization are up to date except for this flu shot.
