To (flu) vacc or not to vacc?

Hey folks, it’s that time of the year again…flu season is coming! I’ve already been reading a lot of misleading or ill informed information. Athletes who are exposed, which is anyone leaving their house, but certainly students and office workers are at high risk. IMO it makes good training sense to vacc. But Science Friday.com explains how the vaccine works. Go to science Friday and search Flu vaccine. The August show is short and informative.

Here’s a great segment from last year which explains why the elderly don’t benefit much from the vaccine.
