Have you ever wondered why you contract the flu even though youve had your annual flu vaccine? Ive 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. Thats why we hear flu can kill 4 thousand to 50 thousand people in the USA during a flu season , when they actually die from pneumonia or other health complications. Some stats claim 12 thousand to 56 thousand people a year!  Will the REAL flu statistics please stand up? Or dont they know and are just guesstimating?
Well, theres overwhelming proof that flu vaccine efficacy (effectiveness) is not up to par with what it had been effective in flu vaccines back in the 1940s, as the chart below indicates, and if not fudged.
