There are no seasonal flu strains any more. Only swine variety. China claims it has lots of B Type but who the heck knows, they lie about everything. I’ve read articles from China (probably Epoch Times, dissenter site) saying that docs in China are ordered not to publicize swine flu cases or deaths, to say they’re from some other cause.
With KV having neoro issues and a trach he gets his flu shots.
Never hurt him.
We both tend to get the killer cold every five years.
This was that year.
Totally wiped out the Christmas cheer for two weeks between the two of us and had to do neb treatments for him.
BUT! We lived and never got so ill that it required going to the dreadfull ER.
We have a private lab willing to come out and draw blood for a 5buck travel fee, ya cant beat that.
Taking a quad with fragile medical care needs into the local community hosp is not an option, I would drive the 2hrs to the Med. Center if he ever needed health care that could not be provided at home....and we do have more options at home in the Emerg care than the local ER.
