I think it just lessons the effect. Also the flu shot is only for the flu. There are hundreds of other cokds

I have only had the shot once in my life. I have had the flu maybe 5 times in my life. *knocks on some wood that I didn't just jinx myself*

They cannot vaxinnate for every strain.  Apparently the strain they vaccinated for is not the strain making people so sick.  While I am sure some have simply not had the flu shot, I am hearing of many who have and are still getting the flu due to the other strain.

IDK, but I'm never getting the flu shot again.  DH & I have been sick non stop since we got it.

My kids get the shot every year and they did not get the flu........besides a regular cold and a sinus infection they are good.

that conflicts with what i heard, and that this year's match is a good one....i've been hearing that all over too....great way for mainstream media to sway the herds, isn't it?

we never get the flu shot...my daughter got the flu this year, she was sick in bed sick for 1-2 days...no one else in the house got it. This further proves to me that the flu shot is unecessary, I have had colds this year worse than her bout of the flu!
