These numbers are starting to scare me

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Yup...going to start some drama but oh well. I decided not to do flu shots this year. I have in the past, but decided to take the risk this year cuz i have heard horrible things about the shot. I also heard that the strain going around isnt even covered by the vaccine.

So far none of my kids even show signs of a cold let alone flu, but i just heard there have been 18 deaths in my state alone. I'm really starting to get concerned and debating if i should rush them all to the dr. for their shots. I really dont want to give it to them but these numbers are alarming!

My kids are good hand washers and take vitamins. I know that doesnt fully protect them but hoping it helps.

Of 250 strands of influenza A only five are included in the shot. Of those five, one is a strain hitting now, two were misses and the other two are inconclusive as of now. So no, to a tee. Is wrong.

Wrong, the strain of flu matches the shot to a tee. The flu is worse this year than in the past too.
