Question: In the two weeks after the shot am i more vulnerable to disease? I never got the flu shot as my own defense system works very well and I am afraid to mess with it.

Brief Answer:
You are more protected .

Detailed Answer:
Thank you writing in healthcare magic.

You should know that 2 weeks from shot, you are more protected and not more vulnerable because your body is producing antibodies to fight the infection.

I hope my answer helps you.
