They as in the CDC.

I've wondered the stats in that as well. If they are or some are you bet they won't release that information.

Who is they? The family can release whatever the hell they choose to.

The CDC can't release information about a kid who died and name the child-that violates HIPPA.

They can compile data and about 2 years from now release their findings...but who reads it at that point?

Frankly kids who die of the flu ARE more likely to be vaccinated.  Because at risk kids are more likely to be vaccinated. The year my oldest was home bound for her depressed immune system we all had to get flu shots-and so did she.  Normally we don't, again, except for her.

I've not read about it other then 18 deaths. Either way, we won't be told if those kids were vaccinated or had compressed immune systems.

I haven't had the flu since childhood and have never had the flu shot. The flu shot often gives the person the flu and and is certainly no where near 100% effective.

The chance that they had the shot is pretty real.

I don't know but most likely not.  We get the flu shot here and since I started getting the vaccine, I never got the flu again.  DD always got the shot and has never had the flu.

The flu shot does not give the person the flu you really should educate yourself in this matter. Nothing is 100% effective in life. It does help to have the shot though.

To answer the op I am wondering that as well.

Both times my dd got influenza she did not have the shot .

The flu shot CANNOT give you the flu as it is a dead strain and not a live one.

However, if you get the FLU MIST, that's does contain the live virus and can therefore possibly give you the flu.

Actually the CDC Data is really up-to-date.  Here are the stats for week ending December 29, 2012.

Sorry I can't make it clicky.

You can get it if you were vaccinated with the nasal spray.

Both have failure rates as well that are quite high.
