From California, USA:

Has there been any research done recently regarding the correlation between the onset of diabetes and the flu shot?


There is no known correlation with flu shots and onset of diabetes and while there as some interest in associations of other immunizations with onset of diabetes, this has also been proven not to be the case with most recent research. It is far more dangerous not to be immunized and get influenza, polio, mumps, measles, diphtheria, tetanus, etc.
