Definitely maybe. The odds of the "right" strains being in the vaccine.... I imagine a monkey throwing two darts into a dartboard would have equal odds. That said, getting the shot (preferably last November) helps reduce the severity of symptomology quite often. Instead of feeling one has been hit by a truck, it's more like a Crown Vic.

Earlier this week I was whining about having what I declared to be "the fluh" which was the flu without the fever.

I am over it.

But, the flu - the real flu - is on a tear and this year may be the worst for "seasonal flu" in more than a decade.

Yesterday the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta has upped the ante and announced that this flu season is starting earlier, the virus is infecting more people, and this year's main strain (H3N2) may kill as many as 50,000 in the United States.
