It seems to me that there is this stigma and misconceptions when it comes to the flu vaccine. Many people seem to be jaded by getting the vaccine when they believe that the flu shot makes them sick. Also many of the general staff at the hospital are upset that they're basically forced into getting a shot, if not forced to wear a mask throughout the entire flu season. I have people that tell me that they get sick after receiving the vaccine weeks if not months after receiving the shot. Many of the nurses that I work with refuse the vaccine swearing that they get sick after the shot. I know that the vaccine is definitely not full proof as there different strains of influenza so taking the shot seems like a gamble. What are some of your thoughts? Personally I don't have a problem with getting the flu shot.

The inactivated or recombinant influenza vaccines can not make people sick with the flu. Nurses need to put this myth to bed.
