If a doctor said to me we are going to inject this poison into your body, its approved by the FDA to be safe, and you will have a 60 per cent chance that it will work, and by the way we dont know if there will be any side affects, but trust me it is OK, I think I would say a great big no thank you.
To me the flu shot has experimental label attached, 60 per cent is not great odds, if we were playing poker we would throw in our cards.
Why was no data given as to the odds a health care worker getting the flu if they are wearing a surgical mask? If a surgical mask is more effective, then wear surgical masks everyone.
Whats next? Compulsory flu shots for every child going back to school after summer holidays? The big pharmaceutical companies would love that.
