CDC Admits Flu Shots Fail Half the Time

After studying influenza infections during 2012-2013 in the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Washington and Pennsylvania, U.S. public health officials reported in 2015 that flu vaccine effectiveness was quite low: between 39 percent and 66 percent, depending upon the influenza strain
Here is what else they learned:
For adults over age 65 years, vaccine effectiveness was close to ZERO.
There was “unexpectedly low vaccine effectiveness for the influenza A strain among older children compared to other age groups,” especially for those who had gotten previous annual flu shots.
S. health officials also found that unvaccinated people were more likely to report their general health status as “excellent” compared to vaccinated people.
In January 2016, U.S. government officials finally publicly admitted that flu vaccines are only 50 to 60 percent effective at preventing lab confirmed influenza requiring medical care in most years. 27 In fact, a CDC analysis of flu vaccine effectiveness for the past decade – from 2005 to 2015 – demonstrated that more than half the time, seasonal flu shots are less than 50 percent effective!
