The shot is never 100% accurate. There are so many strands in the virus family. Sometimes they get lucky and prevent the flu.

Yep. My kids did. They can only predict what flu types to prepare for in the next season. The shot doesn't cover them all.
The above is someting to think about. After flu season starts we know which strain is most prevalent...if they guessed wrong on the strain the shot is utterly uneffective. So often later in flu season they are selling flu shots with a certian prevcieved effectiveness when in fact they know it's not effective against the current most prevalent strain. Carry on.

My sister got flu shot when she was 16 (now 22) and has ben sick/flu almost every single month after having flu/vac shot. Ive heard the good and bad of getting it, i think it depends on person and how strong of immune system. And conspiracy or not bil gates is a peice of just like the clintons. De population is the ideology of the devil

Been getting the flu shot every year for the past 5 years or so. Haven't gotten the flu since.
Different people have different constitutions. My grandfather ate fatback, bacon and eggs for breakfast every day and died at 96. My mom is 92 now. Most these days have weakened constitutions or immune systems due to hormones, artificial ingredients and drug use. Question. Did you get the flu much before you started the shot?

Yes I did. Atleast once a year. Bad. Pukin. Pissin out my ass. It sucked. I guess the flu shot works for me. Maybe not for everybody. I offer all my employees free flu shots. Every year. Not once has anybody taken me up on my offer.

I've only gotten moderately sick from flu shots years ago, but I can't even remember far enough back to know when I got my last one. I suspect it was while in college in the late 70's or early 80's. I rarely ever get sick and if I do I just take some over the counter cold & flu meds to get me through it and alleviate the symptoms so I can function. I won't take another flu shot likely ever.

My grandmother was the same way and lived to 103. However, she was a very moderate eater (she didn't stuff herself at the table) and canned a lot of what she ate for many years fresh from the garden. She had her own little orchard in her backyard and canned fresh apples, peaches, blackberries, strawberries, etc. every year for years. I have no doubt that contributed to her overall health. She never exercised a day in her life that I know of, but kept her house and planted a garden every year by herself until she was pretty old.

I'd like to add one thing. When Grandma was in her mid 90's she fell and broke her hip and had to go into a nursing home. They drugged her up so much to keep her quiet that she actually didn't know anyone or anything for a couple years. She didn't know me when I went to see her. My Mom & Dad took her out to live with them and in a very short while her mind cleared up and she lived out the last several years of her life fully cognizant and able to get around with a walker! I was the last person to see her alive and she died peacefully in her sleep.

I never take the flu shot because my wife is a lab technician and she advised me that its not healthy to do so. I never have the flu, all year long eat organic not hormonic, eat healthy and nothing will happen to you until death. Also in winter season just drink the 1000 MG vitamin C and pre-pare fresh ginger from the store with pure honey, you won't need that flu shot at all.

I only eat steak, meatballs, sausage, potatoes, bread, milk, pizza, cheesesteaks, diet iced tea :D lol, watermelon pronounced woodermelon around these parts, and clif bars occasional cheeseburger at BK. And rarely ever get sick. Cold comes and goes. But never really have a fever with it. Just sore throat. But if i stop working I'll probably have a heart attack from what i eat lol. I hate vegetables. I flat out cannot eat them. Unless they are covered in salt.

This time i got the shot. No side effect this time from it. Just stiff muscle where it was injected. Probably will never get it again.

Hmmmm, absolutely speechless. I have seen those old 95 year old still smoking and no sign of any ilness, you must be one of them, then in the other hand my Portuguese neighbor who died at around 60 who had lots of problems with no smoking nor drinking.
