Spreading an absolute lack of science and mathematics in the form of blogs and opinion articles based on a handful of people isn't proof of anything. It's just justifying what you want to be assured of: that since you haven't gotten the flu OR you once got sick having gotten the vaccine anyway that you shouldn't get or or don't need it. The fact that something may not work is not the same as the fact that it does not work. If that's the case, no one would ever get antibiotics which aren't close to 100% effective. And yet, when you get a Z-pack which makes you feel better, you don't hear anything to the contrary. The evidence only points in one way and it is toward prevention. It always has.
Very well put, couldn't have said it better. There's a reason medicine is moving towards prevention. Way too many conspiracies and rationalization going on as to the reasons not to get it.
