[IP] Re: flu shot

Hmm.  Then why are diabetics considered "high risk" and are one of the first
to get flu shots?
It is the stomach flu that makes the flu dangerous for diabetics.

The "flu shot" is actually two shots in one.  First and foremost, for the
influenza virus.  Second, it also prevents pneumonia.  Two DIFFERENT
medications combined.  The "respitory flu" that you are speaking of is
probably that part of the flu shot.  However, it also affects influenza.
