Flu-shots Not Up to Par.

 ha, I knew I was right about these things being a  waste of time.  What is really in these things- last year someone sent me a link to a you tube video about the sickening stuff they put in these things.  What else is in them?  A “vote for Obama”  virus?

The flu shot is a good match for only about 40 percent of this year’s flu viruses, officials at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday.The biggest surprise has been how poorly the vaccine has performed.But the vaccine’s Type B component turned out not to be a good match for the B virus that has been most common this winter. And one of the Type A components turned out to be poorly suited for the Type A H3N2/Brisbane-like strain that now accounts for the largest portion of lab-confirmed cases.This week, the World Health Organization took the unusual step of recommending that next season’s flu vaccine have a completely different makeup from this year’s.
