Since we’re dealing with a case of the flu after receiving a vaccine (really?), we thought we’d share the 2013 flu data along with vaccine info, symptoms, & everything else related to the flu.

The majority of the data (maps, numbers, reports), symptoms & treatment, health provider info, & so much more is on the CDC’s Seasonal Influenza (Flu) website.

So here’s the answer for getting the flu after a vaccine:

How effective is the flu vaccine?
The flu vaccine is the best protection against the flu this season. If you get the flu vaccine, you are 60% less likely to need treatment for the flu by a healthcare provider. Getting the vaccine has been shown to offer substantial other benefits including reducing illness, antibiotic use, time lost from work, hospitalizations, and deaths
