Interestingly - since there has been a fierce campaign for us to get immunized for the flu...there have not been a decline in deaths in the elderly from the flu.
This campaign has included mandatory flu shots for the health care workers..or masks.
I have worked for our local Health Authority since 2008 and flu shots have not noticeable changed anything as far as deaths in elderly...etc.
The article claims that in order for the shot to be effective at least 80% of the population has to get it. In the states we don't even hit 40%
Blue skies i definitely regret getting the shot. My jerking had all but subsided but the night after my flu shot it came back with a vengence and i'm still jerking like crazy. Muscle twitching has increased as well. Worst of all my heart symptoms had been tolerable but now they are really bad again. It set me back for sure. I have felt terrible since, not that i was feeling good but i was doing better before the shot.
