The current flu shot is only considered effective about 62% of the time. From what I learned today, there are 3 strains out there right now, and you CAN get the flu more than once if another strain comes to visit you. Apparently, the big deal is diligent hand washing and keeping your hands away from your face, along with being vaccinated.
This has been bugging me......can the mail bring you disgusting flu germs?? I'm guessing 'YES', but I don't know. It is porous, and that bugs me! Another of my issues is that I have allergy problems that seem to go all year round, and I have to wait to see if it's the usual or if things are worsening.
I have had a horrible issue with that stomach virus....only once, thank God. If you get that you will also pray to die! That's just how out of contol you will be. I was in college...my boyfriend (a wonderful human being) had it for 2 days and it, readliy jumped off of him and onto me while I was trying to take care of him. I ended up begging to be taken to the infirmary (college)...and that is NOT me. Sick puppy. I was definitely in a "kill-me-now" mentality. We definitely had different experiences, and durations.
