richard. i was a bit shocked you told shannon to get the flu shot. everyone hopped all over me when i told them i had been getting the flu shot every year since having gbs. i know she hasn’t gotten it, but it is a possibility. i have not gotten the flu, nor have i had a relapse since getting the flu shot post gbs. gene gave me the website to look at for the cdc and it scared me into not ever getting the flu shot again. i did get the shot about two weeks ago and i feel fine. i guess it’s a matter of opinion and what you’re comfortable doing. my gbs was brought on by an upper respiratory infection. have you stopped gettimg your flu shot now that you have gotten gbs?
