25. The "3-day flu" and influenza are not the same virus, according to my doctor

Ever since I got really sick one year after getting influenza, I get my flu shots.

This year, a couple of months after the shot, I got a two-or-three-day flu and ended up with a sinus infection, at which point I got antibiotics from my doc. That was when we had that conversation, because he wanted to vaccinate me right then and I told him I already was. He pointed out that there are different viruses, but the vaccine is only made for the most dangerous one: influenza.

I'm going with that.
