The COVID vaccine does not provide 100% immunity either, but it comes pretty close to that as far as keeping you out of the ICU or the morgue. The flu can also put you in the ICU or morgue.>>41% think flu shots don’t work very well
Granted, in the past there was quite a bit of truth to this. They had to totally guess what strains would be prevalent, and the shot only had 2 of them included. Now they cover double the number of strains in the shot - 4 instead of 2 - which means the likelihood of being effective is doubled compared to what the shot used to be. I.E. - twice as likely to protect you.
That's why I've had a total of 5 COVID vaccine doses to date, (and this year's flu shot) and when #6 is authorized, I'll be in that line also.
