"And there have been no controlled trials adequately demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with FLULAVAL ". And the media reported that the flu vaccine was 63% effective, they must have been talking about a different flu vaccine :/

Right. So many still get sick, so slightly over half makes it still "better" than taking your chance naturally.

Quoting Mommyfish831:

Righ!? Because they want it to seem effective but not to effective because nobody would believe it was 85%, then they'd start asking to see th proof.  But 63% does not raise to many eyebrows, their like oh ok.

Quoting kitty8199:

No clue. That's why I think they just pull a number out of their ass



Quoting Ichthus:

Do they say where they get their numbers? What do they base their 63% effectiveness on?




Quoting kitty8199:

I think they just make up numbers
