Can you get the flu , even if you've had a flu shot ?

Yes, there are different strains of (In)FLU(enza). The vaccine covers the most common flu strains, but there is a chance of catching a new or mutated variety.

Yes , the shot only tries to get your immune system used to the virus so that it can prevent it.

I always get it if I get a shot so I never get it. Sadly I have the flu at the moment.

The flu shot doesnt defend you from every kind of flu. Just the kind they think will most likely be most catchable this year.
