Is the Flu Shot Worth It?

We hear it every year, “get your flu shot” or “don’t forget to get your flu shot”, but does the flu shot actually prevent you from getting the flu? Research has shown flu shots have minimal, if any, benefits in actually preventing you from catching the flu!

Here is a quote from the article

Last year, for instance, a study out of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota revealed that, at best, the flu shot has a measly 1.5 percent effectiveness rate — for every 100 people vaccinated with a flu shot, only 1.5 of them will avoid getting the flu. At worst, the flu shot is entirely useless, as the same study showed that about 97 percent of people who do not get a flu shot also do not get the flu.
