Last week the media circus surrounding the flu vaccine reached a crescendo.
Half of all the flu vaccine supply is not available this year!
Why? Because the British company that supplies half of the U.S. flu vaccine supply was shut down by health officials.
Does it really matter?
Unless you are under 2 or over 65 and are in poor health, It doesn't matter.
Because of the flu vaccine shortage The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have said that healthy people under the age of 65 should do without a flu shot.
Gee, that's what we just talked about.
So even if there were enough flu vaccines, why would You be urged to get one?
The CDC just said that healthy people under the age of 65 can do without a flu shot.
