     There are different strains of the flu. The flu shot does not cover them all, what many people call the stomach flu is going around right now too and the flu shot does not cover it.

    A 4-year-old boy from New Jersey was asked not to return to his school without a flu shot. But his parents say the child is allergic to the raw egg in the vaccine.

    Jeremy Pereira was home playing on an iPad instead of attending school on Monday. Jeremy is allergic to egg, which is present in the flu vaccine. His parents won't expose him but without the shot his school won't let him back until April.

    The Pereiras say they had a letter from Jeremy's pediatrician explains his egg allergy. But the boy's doctors recommended giving him the vaccine and then judging his reaction. However, his parents wouldn't do this.

    New Jersey is one of the only states in the nation to require flu shots for young schoolchildren, from six months through 5 years old.

    December 31, 2012, was the deadline was the deadline to get the flu shot.

    The state allows for religious and medical exemptions but according to the state Department of Health the child's primary care provider would have to determine if the child is likely to have a severe reaction to the egg in the flu vaccine.

    Do you know for a fact all ALL of those people had their flu shots?  No.  Millions of people refuse to get it. 

    You can still get the flu if you get the flu shot, but it will make the symptoms less severe and it won't last as long.  We got our flu shots and we still ended up with the flu.  Our symptoms were not even close to as severe as they have been in recent years when we didn't get the shot.  Also, it only lasted 24-ish hours where as before it lasted 5-7 days.

    I guess those cases of the flu couldn't possibly be people that didn't get the vaccine,  that would just make too much sense!

    that is a virus, not the same thing as the flu.  The shot does not protect you from virus.

    Someone mentioned that there is a shot w/o eggs for people who are allergic.  I'm against people forcing people to vaccinate or do whatever to their or their children's bodies but at four, it sounds like preschool which is typically private, which would exempt them from this law.  In this case I support the business's choice to conduct it as they see fit.

    And i have heard this complaint SO often from like 99% of people who said they got the shot

    IDK, but I'm never getting the flu shot again.  DH & I have been sick non stop since we got it.


    well, yes. You can still get sick, but most likely not the flu.  The flu can be confirmed by your doctor.  Don't assume your illness is the actual flu.  99% is an inaccurate number, especially when it is most likely a virus
