I am not sure which shot you are referring to? These days there are many different "shots", such as the flu vaccine, but this you get before you become ill, as prevention. One can also have an antibiotic injection - this is still being given, but only if it is absolutely necessary. Doctors are trying to give antibiotics only when indicated to prevent worsening the antibiotic resistance that have developed (due to overuse of anitibiotics). Hope this answers your question. Have a lovely weekend.
