WILL THE 2018 FLU VACCINE BE BETTER THAN LAST YEAR’S?
EXPERTS ARE ALREADY SAYING NOT LIKELY
Remember that 20% efficacy does not mean that 1 in 5 people who get vaccinated are protected against the flu. In this case, 20% is a mathematical sleight-of-hand that means that 100 people must be vaccinated to prevent a single case of flu. And if efficacy is closer to 10%, such as this season’s vaccine was, you double it (or cut it in half, depending on your viewpoint). In other words, the dirty little secret of the 2017-2018 flu season was that 200 people needed to be vaccinated to prevent a single case of flu (HERE is the proof from a medical epidemiologist).
Ask yourself again why your hard-earned tax dollars are being flushed down the toilet chasing the fantasy of a flu-free society? Oh; I almost forgot — Big Pharma and our government are frequently the same entity (HERE).
