In brief: No
It's too late to get the flu shot if you already had the flu, not if you or people close to you are "already sick.
" too many people think getting a flu shot is supposed to stop you from getting sick. It does, but it only stops you from getting sick with the flu, and nothing else. There are many, many illnesses, and the flu shot protects you from the flu.
