CDC: Flu vaccine only 56% effective

(CNN) - Seniors were one of the main groups urged to get a flu shot this season but for many of them, the vaccine didn't work. The CDC said the vaccine helped just 9 percent of people aged 65 and older. For those under 65, the vaccine was about 56 percent effective. Researchers said they're not sure why the vaccine didn't do much to help older people. But the CDC said even with the disappointing numbers, it's still worth it for everyone to get a flu shot.

Slightly better than 50/50, but everyone should still get it? Of course they want people to get it, Pharmaceutical companies need to make money.

I've gotten many flu shots. But I'm required to get them. I neither want nor need it.

While the odds are slim that any given person will experience severe side effects. The potential does exist.

I am not going to die from a seasonal flu. A simple cost/benefit analysis says getting the shot is not worth the potential effects.

Something to add in regards to that 56% (58% according to this study).. Considering how hit and miss their targeted flu strains are, I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't started introducing their selected virus into populations to ensure their vaccinations appear to be more effective.

CDC Study: Flu Vaccine Ineffective in 91% of Seniors

A study released today by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows shockingly low rates of effectiveness for this year’s flu vaccine.

According to the report, the flu vaccine was effective for only 9% of seniors over 65 years old. In other words, 91% of seniors in the study who were vaccinated were still susceptible to getting the flu.

The CDC showed somewhat better results for younger persons. They claimed that the flu vaccine was effective for 58% of those aged 6 months-17 years, 46% for persons aged 18–49 years, and 50% for persons aged 50–64 years.

Edit to add : My apologies, your article did mention that statistic.

Errrm, I had a flu shot at the start of winter and my wife didn't. Guess what - she caught the flu and I did not.

That is completely opposite of my situation I mentioned earlier.

Lending more credence to my statement that flu shots are 50/50 at best. Therefore unnecessary and not worth the risk.

Interesting thoughts. There are several ways to look at this, if you assume that the shots have some purpose other than that of simple vaccinations.

1. The shots could be used to make people ill, and weaker, so that there would be more money made for medicines, and for population reduction, in a small way. After all, most don't die of flu, so even deliberately making people sick would not eliminate followers.

2. The shots could be used to alter people in some way, perhaps with substances that would make them more susceptible to mind control, or perhaps some genetic modification.

3. The shots could contain tracking devices.

Either way, as hard as they are pushed, I am suspicious about the motives. When medical people and leaders don't take the same shots as are offered to the average person, I become more so. I know I do not take flu shots. They quite literally make me sick. When a member of the household got them, they made me sick. No shots? No flu. This past season, we got sick ONCE, and the docs tested for flu, acting as though they wanted that to be the issue, and it wasn't. Interesting doc visits.
