I really don't know how anyone can be sucked in by all the hype

regarding flu vaccines. They don't help much (if at all)

and they are proving to be quiet harmful.

When my grandfather was a kid he had to stay at home for a long time, longer than he ever had. He didn't know why, but really enjoyed having such an extended vacation from school. He lived in a small village, so there were about a dozen children in the one-room school. When he returned to school, it was half empty. There were only half a dozen of his schoolmates.

The flu kills between 500 000 and 5 million people per year, that's why the vaccine is important.

As for the vaccine itself...0.02-0.18% of people have narcolepsy. 1 out of 55000 cases is less than the normal incidence of the disease.
