I had the Flu jab once and as a result got full blown influenza 3 weeks later. Coincidence? I didnt think so. I never got the shot again as a result and have never had the flu since.
What are peoples thoughts on the flu season and reporting of it? (proper flu - 3 days of hot and cold flushes, liquid from every orifice...Not simple man flu)
Ive read a few opposing views - this being one of them : http://www.beyondconformity.co.nz/BlogRetrieve.aspx?BlogID=1598
It makes for interesting reading (as the internet does :-)
However, you can see the point when most reporters use stats based on 'flu like symptoms' and not actual influenza.
Any article the uses stats normally turns me of immediately.....
