Flu epidemic? natural or man-made

by Willy - 1/7/13 2:34 PM

I just wonder if what the news explained that the flu is getting around big time. If its the result of a natural one as would always be gotten or one because of all the people taking flu shots. The flu is the flu,right. The shots taken are suppose to weaken or lessen the effects of the flu, BUT!!! what about the poeple that don't take a flu shot. Would the effect be as "full-blown" catching from some that had the flu shot. I wonder because the flu itself can regenerate into a mutant form other than what was given. Besies that it may have a leg-up on anything new coming down the pike. Mand-made may cut the time a natural mutation takes place and gets a more virgorlant form, maybe.

I had the weak form of a flu, but got over it pretty soon. But, I still was sick but seemed to have less than what was expected. However, did I mention I was still sick, the time period remained the same and overall, it wasn't the "Oh God, help me" mode. But, I wasn't in the best health either. Because, of my age and all and current health, they really want me to get the shots, but i always refuse. I get the flu anyways, shots or not. I think for now, I've passed the period of sickness around here at least of what was going around. -----Willy happy
