Today the Courier Mail reported a bizarre influenza outbreak at Middle Park State School, where 1 in 3 people (children, teachers etc) from the school have reported in sick with the flu.
- 1 in 3 got the anti-flu shots yet still got sick?
- 1 in 3 didn’t get the anti-flu shots yet still got sick?
- Why do those with the supposed protection, fear those without it?
- Why only the one school? Did / do they have an anti-flu shot program running from that school?
Bloody newspapers that only report half the story, piss me off.
As per my Courier Mail comment, I know people, including my father 4 years ago, that got the $30+ anti-flu shot, yet still caught the flu.
Last shot I had was about 30 years ago, for tetanus.
I’ve lived in a draughty, dusty caravan with holes in the floor the last 20 years … yet the last time I had the flu? Apart from near death bronchitis (which doesn’t count) about 2 years ago, I honestly don’t remember. I think I had a 24hr head cold about 3 years ago, but that’s it.
Must be all the cheap Sonata wine I drink? 🙂
