CDC: Flu shot may not match new strain

Another reason to be proactive about immunity and take care of your gut health.

I’ve wondered if the flu shot is making the virus worse each year. If a virus by its very nature will find a way to survive, are we collectively forcing it to get stronger and nastier each year? Who knows.  I just wonder.

“A sampling of flu cases so far this season suggests the current flu vaccine may not be a good match for the most common seasonal flu strain currently circulating in the United States, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Wednesday. The U.S. health agency issued an advisory to doctors noting that flu virus samples the agency took from Oct. 1 through Nov. 22, showed that just under half were a good match for the current influenza A (H3N2) component contained in flu shots for the 2014-2015 season, suggesting the virus has drifted.”
