In the January 23 interview with country music celebrity Dwight Yoakam, Piers and Dwight discuss the connection between the recent shot and his new sickness. In the interview, which can be seen below, Piers asks “…As you can tell, things are deteriorating. Is there any advice you can give me?”
Yoakam replies with a simple “Don’t ever take a flu shot again,”
I'm not sure I consider Dwight Yoakam a medical expert.
I'm sorry Morgan is ill.
maybe there can be a trial and you can participate in it
well . . . I got a flu shot . . . so I don't know why it would bother me to participate in a trial for the flu shot . . . seems like kind of a waste, though.
There are several reasons why someone might get flu-like symptoms even after they have been vaccinated against the flu.

Snipped to keep it under 100 words, but you can read it for yourself.
and are you serious? I'm supposed to believe this man has "the flu?"
what a joke.
If someone gets the actual flu (as opposed to "flu-like symptoms") immediately following the flu shot, it's because they were exposed to the flu already at the time they got the shot. The shot isn't going to protect against a case of the flu that someone is already in the process of contracting. It takes time to build the immunity.
Similar to the reason the whole "I'll just stay home from my job if I get the flu and so I won't expose anyone" is total crap, because you can spread the flu before you even realize you have it.
