Got a better idea, bozo?
Yes, i do. use homeopathic remedies for prevention. I got the flu once in the past 10 years while using homeopathic remedies. This years harsh strain of the flu did in my whole family. We passed it around between each other for about 10-12 days.
And I did get a flu shot once. Once! Within five months of getting a flu shot, I got the flu.
When I went to the doctor (who diagnosed me with the flu), he asked me if I got a flu shot within the past 5 months. Then I told him I did, he replied that what usually happens when the flu shot wear off is that the patient gets the flu. Both my wife and I have run into other doctors (family practice doctors) who refuse to get a flu shot because of that reason.
The study that i want to see is a comparison of those who get a flu shot and and still get the flu to those who got the shot and did not get the flu.
Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.
