Re: Flu shots?

The new seasons flu shots are available from about October. Each year WHO apparently advises the pharma companies which influenza strains to include in the upcoming seasons flu shots, pharma produces them, undertake clinical trials, then if OK they then have to get approval by the regulatory authorities, hence the new season's flu shots are available from around October time. And thats why you currrently need a new flu jab every year - the influenza strains may change. If you still get the flu after having a flu jab then maybe WHO got it wrong and you have caught a different type of flu to those contained in the vaccination....
