Actually a recent study showed that flu-shots saved on average only 1 day of illness, didn't cut down on the amount of hospital admissions, and are at best a guess as to which strain might be prevalent come winter.
Here in NC the flu shot has been a total waste of time. Seems a new strand of flu virus is sweeping the nation and affecting just as many people who had the flu shot as those who didn't. Several deaths have already to blame on this new flu. Good luck to you, hope you feel well soon.
Hang in there artist! We have the finest grannies in the chicken soup brigade, and if necessary will bring in the big guns. Nothing like genuine authentic Motzo Ball soup fresh from the deli to fight off an evil flu.
Sorry to hear that you got fit by it again. I don't get the shot and I still to this day haven't gotten the flu. I have heard that if you get the shot you are more susceptible to it. My suggestion is to try without it next time and see what happens. But you never know what I heard could have been wrong. Either way I hope you get to feeling better soon. Take care.
Because there's literally hundreds of strains of influenza so you want to be protected and hope the one you catch is one you've already been immunized against so it doesn't last as long or hit you as hard.
Urgh, that sucks . I feel your pain 'Po, I'm currently dealing with a sinus infection that's a week running. Not my idea of a Christmas vacation. I hope you feel better, I'll be rooting for you to kick this thing sooner rather than later.
