Posted: Updated:

Flu shots are supposed to help you.

But one 9-year-old girl lost her vision and her ability to move not longer after she got a flu shot.

According to CNN, Her parents say they think this is a rare reaction to the flu shot.

The 4th grader lives in Texas, and has been in a hospital bed since October 17th.

Her parents say that she had a flu shot just two days before her health started deteriorating.

Dr. Umair Shah, the executive director of Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services, says flu shots are extremely safe and encourages everyone over the age of 6 months to get one.
