4. sorry, but bullshit. obviously don't understand how flu vaccines work
flu vaccines are made a year EARLIER , based on the prevailing strain at that time. As a result, any NEW strain is not covered by the vaccine, even if you got the vaccine.

this is just ignorance masquerading as outrage.

the point is, ANY new flu strain is deadly precisely because its new.
