Last year's flu shot won't shield you this year: Two new strains of influenza have begun circling the globe, and the updated vaccine appears to work well against them, government officials said Thursday.
Influenza strains constantly evolve, and some cause more illness than others.
"...strains from the H3N2 family tend to be harsher than some other flu types, and a new H3N2 strain is included in this year's vaccine because it is circulating in parts of the world.
Only one ingredient in this year's flu vaccine was retained from last year's, protection against the H1N1 strain that caused the 2009 swine flu pandemic and has been the main kind of influenza circulating since. Also new in this year's shot is protection against a different Type B strain.

Manufacturers are expected to make about 135 million doses of flu vaccine this year, and there are four different forms to choose from:..."
We hold a mass innoculation exercise in the County each year. It is a collaboration between Public Health, Emergency Services, the hospitals, nursing school, fire and sheriff’s and police dept. It is a drive-by flu shot clinic. People come in their cars, stay in the vehicle, go to various stations (like payment, health risks and facts notices and the shot.) They, put the car in park, roll down the window and get a needle in their arm and a bandaid. Then they go on their merry way.
Works for us!
New Flu Shot Guards Against Newest Strains
On strains. You seen this one?
Haven’t seen novel coronaviruses floating around since SARS. And Saudi Arabia??
Entering 'mark of the beast' territory here...certainly can't 'buy or sell' without a job now, can you?
Sorry about the second ping. I keep getting 502 errors and thought the first one hadn’t gone through.
“Some hospitals are now MANDATING flu shots for employees”
When I was in the military they did the same thing. Its not the mark of the beast, its so you don’t get the flu.
Geez I wish big pharma would stop manufacturing viruses in their labs and releasing them to the public so they can provide the cure at $30 a pop.
The people are being conditioned...
Lol. I think SARS was a Chinese weapons experiment escaped.
What this is, no one knows yet. But Saudi Arabia is probably one of the most active bioweaponeers around.
“The people are being conditioned...” ....so that they don’t get the flu.
That’s how this works, you get a shot and you have a high-degree of probability of avoiding the flu with a very low rate of complications.
What do you think they are being “conditioned” for?
It's all about 'saving lives'...ROTFLMAO!!!
I’m a big believer in preventive medicine and have gotten flu shots since the Regan administration.
Last year I put the wooded stake into the Hep B virus vaccination and currently working on Hep A.
2 pneumonia inoculations over the years good against 50 or so varieties...
...if there’s a inoculation available I’ll take it.
to accept mandates.
The ‘flu’...booga, booga. Have a nice day...
“to accept mandates.”
An employer has the right to set the conditions for employment. In this case, a hospital, it is particularly relevant to the work environment.
Then again, maybe I’m tainted, having received this years flu shot all on my own, maybe I’m infected with the government pre-programmed virus which makes me think that flu vaccines are actually for preventing the flu
You have that right, but it should NOT be mandated...
Not the one I work at. Its offered free to any employee who wants it but is not mandatory or conditional for employment.
