I think i know the answer to this question but is it possible to get the flu even though one has had the jab? i heard from a source that with ppl with low immune systems, the flu jab can only protect the first stages of the flu, but if caught there is no resistance from it, hmmm i think ive got the flu :(

The yearly flu shot is aimed at certain flu's that the specialist feel are going to be the major threat, not all the flu's that are out there are covered by the shot.

So yes, it is possible to get the flu even though you've had the shot. But you are better protected.
