I have been asked if I would like to have the flu vaccine as I am around children at school a lot. My immediate reaction is no thanks as the only timeI have had the vaccine was the year I got the flu! I was told it was a different strain of flu to the one the vaccine was for! So if it does not protect against most flus why do people bother to have it? I am 100% in agreement with having all the usual childhood vaccinations against smallpox, Polio, tetanus etc but I also feel that you do need a few germs in you and the flu as horrible as it is at the time, it is not life threatening to an average healthy person. Am I alone in this thinking?
