False. The flu vaccine is less effective than last year. It has around 20% accuracy, compared to around 40% last year, based on the flu season on the other side of the World. So, it’s not more effective. It still needs to be improved. Although it’s impossible for any vaccine to have 100% accuracy, and for herd immunity to ever exist, there are clear ways to improve the forecasting and accuracy of the vaccine, by improving the manufacturing process, but we all accept low accuracy rates. It could be that people are finally following good hygiene, and sick people are staying home. My local school district cancelled classes for nearly a week because they thought they had a high level of flu cases. The verdict is still out as to whether that was the case. That statement by the CDC is a standard press release, nothing more than that. We love hysteria, and it’s the job of their PR office to provide false information to promote a vaccination that isn’t great. I have good friends at the CDC that know better. We deserve better vaccines.
