In brief: Yes.

Every flu season, there are at least 2 or 3 strains going around at different times.
Flu vaccine can prevent you from getting the strain you haven't had yet.

In brief: Yes

There are multiple flu strains in the flu shot.
You can have the flu and still catch one of the other strains in the same season. I have it seen it happen to multiple patients each flu season.
