Hi

It could be that you have a milder version of the flu and that if you did not have the flu shot then you would have been more ill. It is also possible that it is not the flu, but a different virus that you have. To make sure that your immune system stays strong, please take a daily supplement of Vit C and Zinc. Hope you stay healthy for the rest of the Winter!
