Flu vaccination is a curious thing. You willing allow a virus to enter your body, albeit one that is supposedly dead and can’t reproduce, so that it generates antibodies that can fight off a live virus should one come along. But a few days after the injection, you get a very mild case of the flu. Sniffles, slight fever. You accept that — getting sick voluntarily — because theoretically those antibodies are now present and on guard for months, that is, for the upcoming “flu season.”
One wonders if there is any actual evidence that any of this works. Evidence as in statistical proof involved two large groups — one group vaccinated and the other not — and the numbers on how many in each group get sick. One would suppose there is such evidence, even to the point of indicating just how effective these vaccinations really are.
See the link below for this evidence.
