A female asked:
I've already had the flu this season. Should i still get a flu shot anyway? If i've already had the flu, should I get the flu shot too? Is there a chance i might get it again if i don't have the shot? .

So you could develop one type of viral infection (including influenza), but it may not be the same strain of influenza that you would be vaccinated against. So, yes, it can be helpful.
