NO. The flu shot does not give you the flu, and here’s why.

Please stop saying that the flu shot gave you the flu and that that’s why you don’t get it (the shot). 

This is incredibly incorrect. This is misinformation that you need to stop spreading, especially to your children. My child learned this at school. But, I turned that around real fast.

How many kids heard this and took it home with them to spread with their friends and family? 

No. The flu shot does not give you the flu. Here’s why:

“I don’t get the flu shot because it gave me the flu.” No it did not. The flu shot didn’t give you the flu. Here’s why. #flu #flushotIt’s early. I’ve had a lot of coffee. I’m wearing a scrunchie. And operation warp speed news is driving me insane. I have a lot to say today.
