In a recent conversation with Alan Cassels, author of Selling Sickness, he stated to me: "I don' think the flu vaccine promotion benefits most people. I recently wrote this piece. In fact, I am starting to feel that we are going to look back at our societal enthusiasm for flu vaccinations the same way we look at blood letting."
That last observation is pretty damning of the "flu vaccine industry". Time will tell. For now, every year, I opt-out of the flu shot.
