I've been sick for a week, and it seems like everyone I know is sick too. Does anyone know if this H3N2 strain is the same one that was included in the 2012 flu vaccine?
Thousands of Canadians celebrated the holiday season feeling a bit feverish, knocked off their feet by a strain of influenza that’s hurried across the country earlier than in years past.
Emergency rooms in Montreal, Quebec City and Saguenay have all reported they are operating 50 or 60 per cent above capacity, in part due to the impact of the nasty flu season

Not every sickness is the flu. I have a horrible cough and produced brown and green phlegm for a few days, with fever, chills, and sore throat, but I have a cold. The cold virus is not included in flu shots. So sick people who got a flu shot most likely do not have the flu. That's not propaganda, that a fact.
If you don't want a flu shot, fine. If and when you get the flu, you will be held accountable for your choice. But the usual response to this is just another layer of conspiracy....
A cold has mild symptoms. You usually do not have fever. And if you do have fever, it's a low-grade 100, 101. You have runny nose, cough, but they're mild. And you don't usually have severe body aches. You can usually continue your daily routine functions.
