My post might be a little too long for some people. You can tune out now. ANYWAY, the so-called flu "scientists" get together about a year ahead of time and decide what types of flue they THINK will be the worst for the upcoming flu season. So the flu that they think will by bad for the 2012-2013 winter would have been decided sometime early in 2012. The vaccine companies then start making the vaccine and it takes months to manufacture their batches. As far as the flu variety guesses, sometimes the scientists are dead on and sometimes they are completely off. If they are completely off, your flu shot won't help you out because you will have flu immunity to the wrong types of flu. If they manage to guess correctly, your flu vaccine shot MIGHT stop you from getting the flu. It's as simple as that. Now to the people who say "The vaccine is dead. There is no way it can hurt you", let me tell you the story of my mom. She went in to the hospital for a flu shot in 2010. The shot was given by a registered nurse, no fly-by-night stand at WM. Anyway, a couple hours after she got the shot, the area of the needle prick got a bright red. The next day her whole arm was a bright red and hot. She spent the next 10 days in the hospital (same place she got the shot) on heavy antibiotics for bacterial poisoning in the blood. The doctors didn't tell her that until she was dismissed because they were afraid she would sue them. So anyway you CAN get sick from a flu shot if it's not from the vaccine itself. With all that being said, I'm not afraid to get a flu shot and it just might help me. But I didn't get one last year and I haven't decided yet if I'm going to get one this year.
