Via Reuters: CDC Sounds Alarms on Flu Outbreak, Urges Flu Shots
I received a flu shot a few weeks ago for the bargain price of $10. This article is a bit confusing with it's message on the flu vaccine.
Okay, so first it's like "Dude, get your shots!"
Warning that an earlier-than-usual influenza outbreak could foreshadow a severe flu season, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control on Monday urged Americans to get a vaccine to guard against infection.Then, it's like "Dude! Those shots probably ain't gonna work!"
Gerberding said that the Atlanta-based CDC also was concerned about a new strain of flu that does not match the strain in the current vaccine.So, next time, CDC, why don't you just give everyone a papercut and pour some lemon juice on it...it'll be the same as getting the shot and you won't spend as much money on syringes and vaccine...
