I figured I'd ask this here, as I noticed an odd coincidence. I'm not generally one who falls for various conspiracy theories but I swear, nearly everyone I know who got a flu shot has been sick right after it. I don't mean a mild discomfort sniffling nose but rather I got hit by a bus type of cold. I called in a sick day today, and I noticed that nearly my whole team is calling in sick (we mostly work remote so there's been little to none contact to infect each other). We all got flu shots within the same time frame. My Mother who got a flu shot is dealing with being sick as are my kids, but since they're in my household, they have caught it from me. The afterschool provider is dealing with the same issue, even though her kids are at home and not in the afterschool program. Friends are are also dealing with being sick right and they also got a flu shot. It seems odd that everyone I know, who got the flu shots has been dealing with sicknesses. Just seems odd.
