Flu Vaccine Fails Newlywed Who Dies Just 4 Days After She Fell Sick

Posted in: , ,

Katie McQuestion - a 26-year-old who only just had her wedding last September - is dead from the flu just 4 days after she began to feel sick. The worrying thing is that she got a flu shot to comply with hospital policy and had no underlying medical conditions. Still she caught the flu and developed a serious complication from it: sepsis. She died on Jan. 2.

ABC News reports that McQuestion complained she didn't feel well on a mother-daughter trip to a dress shop on Dec. 29, said her mother, who asked not to be named. The following day, McQuestion was sent home sick from work. Her mother said she picked up a prescription for her on New Year's Eve.
