Severe vertigo after getting flu vaccine. What to do?

In 2008 & 2009 I had severe vertigo starting 4 days after getting the flu vaccine . First time was hospitalized three days to test for stroke . Second year I had no ability to balance for 3 weeks. I have not had the shot since, do I dare try this year? Before 2008 I had taken the shot annually for 20+ years. Thank you

hello dear
thanks for your query at HCM
these are contraindication for flu vaccine
Hypersensitivity to egg proteins, kanamycin and neomycin or other components of the vaccine, or life-threatening reaction to previous influenza vaccination.
you have developed reaction to vaccine two times , so avoid vaccine this time.
some time it may cause severe life threatening reaction if your hypersensitive to it.
