If the odds of you getting the flu any year are 1:50
then the odds of you getting the flu with the flu shot any year are 1:100
I have to get the flu shot every year because my mom has cancer and she basically has to be in a bubble, so if I am to ever see here I have to have it. So, I have been getting it and I have not really gotten sick. Some years I have, some not.
If I wasnt required to get it I would probably not do it, but I have to say I have noticed I have been less likely to get sick. What I really notice though is that it seems when everyone is sick I do not get sick. That is the one thing I have absolutley noticed. Even if I get sick later that year, its usually not when everyone else is. What that means I do not know. Just something I have come to notice these past few years
