In the first few minutes of that video, Dr. Nancy Snyderman says that this year's flu vaccination is spot-on for this year's flu.
I received a vaccination. So did my neighbor. We got them from different places, and we both got the flu. How come?
My sister and her family got their vaccinations, too. When I spent a holiday meal with them, I was just coming down with symptoms. I figured that they would all get sick, but my sister says no one is ill.
I know about a half dozen people who received the flu vaccination, but still got the flu. If the vaccine is a perfect fit for this flu, why does this happen? Is some vaccine expired, or less potent than others?
I get a flu shot every year. I normally do not get the flu.
