However a flu vaccine to me is more of a game of Russian roulette because every year that I got the shot I got the Flu, but since I stopped getting the shot and washing my hands more often I can't remember the last time I got the flu, 6 years maybe? 7? This I believe was not due the shot but due to me contracting a different flu virus then the shot was intended for. I didn't practice as much hand washing but since I've started washing my hands more I hasn't gotten the flu. But since I have a son I'm going to get him get the flu shot, as his body is not as prepared for such a viral attack on his system.
So you're going to give your son a 'flu shot even though you believe this is 'Russian roulette' and even though you believe you got 'flu every year from a different virus than the one the shot was for? His little body is going to have to deal with the shot and then, more than likely, a different 'flu virus too.
