Vaccines – useful or not?

April 23, 2020

Amid all the blah-blah about a coronavirus vaccine the “experts” were decrying the fact that some people were not getting flu shots.

I can tell them why.

Although I get a flu shot every year, almost without fail, the news says the flu strain of any particular year is not the one that the vaccine covers.  That leads a lot of people to ask “why bother to spend the money and time to get it (and it can be a lot of money…$106.00 for me at a doctor’s office  one year)?

Supposedly the Wuhan virus is not mutating significantly, but should it decide to do so, will the vaccine be any better than the flu vaccine?

We’d sure better hope so.
