YOU think everything that works for you works for everyone else.
YOU ARE DEAD WRONG!
Not sure where you got the idea that I was advocating any course of action for anybody. I think everyone should make their own choices about the flu vaccine and I'm not about to criticize anyone's choice.
I was just saying that I think you may have misinterpreted what the local news had to say (and the local news isn't exactly the best source for medical info anyway).
The science that says that the flu shot is a net positive for the very young and the elderly looks fairly convincing to me. I'll take another look at it if I'm considering the shots for myself, or if I have kids.
