Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
No the flue shot may not help her at this stage. But there is no need to worry as the flue is generally transient. All it takes is some rest and plenty of water. Its unfortunate that your husband had to take IV fluids which is not generally normal.
Wait for her to develop an illness and if needed give her acetaminophen which can take care of her.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
