Let me see...in 1918 40 million people died in the big flu epidemic...40 million!!
True. And true is that flu is serious illness. However, to put things into perspective you must say that over billion of people got sick this year. So, death toll was around (probably bit less) 4% and it's far far from "everybody that got it died" hysteria that most of people think of when someone mentiones Spanish Flu. Also, you have to consider fact that it was 1918, World War One just ending, no medicines, and those that are available are joke in comparison to medicines today - and also that biggest outbreaks were among soldiers (and biggest joke is when someone today mentions "those were strongest and healthiest" people - hm, yeah right, after four years of war in absolutely unhuman conditions...they were dying of much less serious diseases then of flu)
Also, some of you have deeply wrong assumptions, especially in light of vaccine shortage in USA. If you get the flu shot, YOU CAN STILL PASS FLU TO OTHERS! You will maybe (just maybe because flu vaccine has worst results of all vaccines on planet) not get sick, but you WILL get into contact with flu, virus WILL enter your system, and, although for shorter period then someone that really gets sick with flu, you CAN pass viruses to others. You don't seriously think that if you get flu shot and you get into contact with viruses they will run away screaming madly? No, they will enter your body, but your body will beat them (as well as it can possibly beat them without flu shot)
So, it's not my business of course, but I would politely suggest that you healthy people skip vaccine this year.
