It surpasses every winter flu season since 2003, when the government changed the way it measures flu.

Early last month, it hit what seemed like peak levels — but then continued to surge.

The season has been driven by a nasty type of flu that tends to put more people in the hospital and cause more deaths than other more common flu bugs. Still, its long-lasting intensity has surprised experts, who are still sorting out why it’s been so bad.

One possibility is that the vaccine is doing an unusually poor job; U.S. data on effectiveness is expected next week.Preliminary studies out of Australia and Canada have found the shot was only 10 to 20 percent effective in those countries against the H3N2 strain that’s causing the most suffering this winter.

Some doctors say this is the worst flu season they’ve seen in decades. Some patients are saying that, too.

Didn't most of the fatalities that happened take place in people who got the flu shot? If i remember correctly the deaths that were publicized said that those people had the vaccine. yet they still urged others to take it, and used those deaths as an example.

I fucked up

Never had it for years and once a year I'd get sick for 2 or 3 days and be done with it

This year a mobile clinic was by my house doing shots so I said, why not?

I've been on and off this fucking sickness for a good two months now.

Never again
