I really wish there was someone out there collecting data on the people who are hospitalied with the flu and how many of them received the flu vaccine. If there is such a study, I'd really love to see it! 

Anyway, what's the supposed success rate of the flu vaccine?

I'm not sure the actual "success rate" but personally everyone i know that received the vaccine has since had the flu. So far we're unscathed.

There was a study in the Lancet that claims a 1.5% success rate.

Unfortunatley, the problem with this is that reactions go largely underreported.  Hospitals certainly dont want to file with VAERS becasue they get lots of money from the drug companies to keep their doors open.  Doctors get lots of perks for pushing drugs of all kinds.  40% of pediatricians income comes from the adminsitration of vaccines.  there is a partial list at VAERS.  google the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events REproting System) and for the REPORTED reactions it will tell  you how many deaths, how many "other" and what if anythingi was paid to the victims.  This is a long process and most filers give up.  It takes years.  We fought for over seven years jumping through hoops, only to be summarily dismissed before our hearing was heard due to the Supreme Court ruling no one could file for autism.:(

I doubt "they" would approve of that type of study.

of course not...it would expose the truth-that it doesn't work

Quoting rachelrothchild:
