I thought there was a discussion of this back in 2007 - concerns that the Avian flu might be resistant to Tamiflu. I'll do some more digging. I know where I am influenza has really hit people hard. I was down for 5 days in bed with it and I usually never get sick.

If you choose not to get vaccinated against the current strains of flu, does that make your immune system more able to resist the future mutations?
