Those with strong immune systems do not need this vaccine. It's hit and miss as to whether they get the right strain in the thing anyway.
Not to mention that that would be a great way to surreptitiously get a DNA sample and implant a microchip.
Flu shots are for whimps!
How come I can get a tetanus shot that lasts for 10 years, but I have to get a flu shot every year? Is there a 12 month shelf life on the antibodies in a flu shot? I understand that there are new flu strains every year, and that the medical community often misses the mark in guessing which flu will arise in a given year. But, given that I have had a flu shot every year for the last 10 years, shouldn't I have a pretty good chance of being immunized to whatever might come up?
Godot (Anonymous) says: "How come I can get a tetanus shot that lasts for 10 years, but I have to get a flu shot every year?"Because they guess which flu strain you will get and develop a vacine for that strain. If they guess wrong your flu shot it is worthless.
