[quote:AlkaliDesert:MV8yMTAxNDEzXzM1NTYzNjUyX0Y2NTE0RTRD] I work in an institutional setting where the flu vaccine is encouraged. I had some free time today and put together some numbers. Out of 100 patients and staff: 77 got the flu shot. Of those: 26 were treated for respiratory problems since Dec. 1 (6 early). 9 had mild symptoms that weren't treated 42 had no symptoms 17 declined the flu shot. Of those: 3 were treated for respiratory problems since Dec. 1 (1 early) 2 had mild symptoms 12 had no symptoms 6 are status unknown. All of those have no symptoms. (Incidentally, none have died, 2 of the early cases went to the hospital.) Don't make too much of it - it's not particularly scientific. They haven't been swabbed, so there's no way of knowing how many actually had the official flu (though I'm quite sure some of them who got the vax did have the flu based on the symptoms). These are not the actual numbers (I'm paranoid), but the percentages are roughly accurate, and the sample size is in the same ballpark (ie. I'm not basing this on a sample of 10 people or 1000). The "early" ones had symptoms in late November/early December, while most had symptoms starting in late December. I suspect the early ones were not influenza. Mild symptoms are largely based on my own recollection, and I suspect there are more people who have had mild symptoms. This does not include anyone who had only digestive symptoms. It should be kept in mind that those who have existing respiratory problems or immunocompromise are overall more likely to get the vaccine, while those who are comparatively healthy are more likely to decline it. So those who got the shot are probably more likely to get respiratory problems regardless. Make of it what you will. [/quote]
