That's not entirely why. The main reason is that the flu is zoonotic, just like COVID19. You can vaccinate every single human with the three most likely strains to spread during a season, and it's not going to do anything for the following year because the virus will still exist within the animal population.

Thank You , There are many ,so far insurmountable , reasons a Flu vaccine has been extremely limited .. It's why they want to create a false fear porn need for annual Flu shots.

Flu vaccines are somewhat of a guess. They take three strains that they think will be the most likely to be the three biggest of the next year, and make a shot based on that.

So you are saying that the approximate success rate of 35 to 50% in some years may be leading to more virulent strains of Flu ? Just as vaccine failure in Merek's Disease where the vaccine created a bigger problem than it was designed to stop?

Well, I wouldn't go that far. What I will say is that I've been to Pluto as many times as I've had the flu shot. I never got them just because I've known people who got "milder" flu symptoms from them and it's pretty much a gamble. I've only had the flu a few times in my lifetime, and it sucked. But, I don't want to get lesser flu once a year through a needle. That was my thinking pre-koof. Now I just don't trust anything from a needle.
