I have heard some people talking about why they are not getting flu shots and they said that you can get really sick from them. I seen some news articles saying people have died from the shot. Is this possible?

I get one every year and haven't had any problems. I know a lot of people who claim they got "so sick" from it. I work at a hospital  and this year they made it mandatory for all staff ( I  work in med records) to get one. If you can't get one due to a medical  issue then you have to get a waiver which they'll review to see if you can get an exemption. A lot of these people  who complained about getting sick from it have not gotten sick.
