Details About Flu Vaccine And Its Effectiveness

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Have you ever wondered why you contract the ‘flu’ even though you’ve had your annual flu vaccine?  I’ve heard questions about that conundrum, along with other laments, from many folks.

Also, one has to consider there are such things a “flu-like symptoms,” which often are confused with actual influenza, a contagious respiratory illness caused by a virus, according to the CDC.  However, the CDC and others in the healthcare services industry make ‘educated guesses’ rather than analyzing cultures to scientifically ascertain if a patient has flu rather than flu-like symptoms, which they can lump under the category as “influenza” for skewed disease statistics, in my opinion.  That’s why we hear flu can kill 4 thousand to 50 thousand people in the USA during a ‘flu’ season [4], when they actually die from pneumonia or other health complications.  Some stats claim 12 thousand to 56 thousand people
