Flu Shot Only 18% Effective? Passing Grade?

Well, almost everyone has observed the push for flu shots.  What just used to be a casual recommendation from the doctor is now in every grocery store and drug store in America with huge advertising campaigns pushing you to protect yourself.  Employers have even begun to require employees to get flu shots as a condition of their employment.  We are only a hop, skip, and a jump away from required flu shots in schools.  And yet, the CDC has publicly acknowledged that for the second year in a row, the flu shot has failed miserably, fostering only a paltry 18% rate of effectiveness.  That’s 18%.  Think of it in school terms.  60% is a passing grade.  18% is a high school dropout that smoked weed and skipped class half the semester.

Also bear in mind that these are the same organizations urging everyone that vaccinations are perfectly okay and can’t have any negative effects.
