Hope this makes you feel better.
Fair point ... watinginthewings. I must admit I had not considered this, as I just assumed this was about a person who got vaccinated at the time of the flu (months ago) and was relating to whether the poisons in them would be contaminatory.

So yes, more of a concern if they have had the vaccine recently. We certainly didn't seem to get the secondary pandemic that people spoke of though, those vaccinated infecting those not, so maybe even that (recent vaccination) is minimal risk.
