US population is 311 million. We are expecting 41 million cases of flu.

Sure hope we can find a cure. I haven’t had flu in 30-40 years but I sure remember it. Doctor friend of the family came to my house back then.

charles- Try a minimum of 335 million already a few years back, and given your bud Sniffy and his loser Sec of DHS have opened the southern border, another 5 million across the border in the past 2 years.

I can count the number of times I've had real flu on my hands in the past 50 years so maybe once in every 5 years, probably less. I have never taken the flu shot (not "anti-vax" until probably the past 2-3 years) but because I don't get the flu!! By the way, there are actual peer-reviewed papers that show that statistically the number of flu caused deaths has not overly decreased in the 20 years that the flu shots have been available, but whatever, if it makes you feel better, roll up your sleeve.

So, what is your point in the end, that the U.S. is going to have a bad flu year...? Given that "flu" basically didn't "exist" during the winter of 2019/20, what would you expect? Just like the rise of RSV in little kids this year given that most kids less than 3 have not been exposed to the regular infections that they typically get-- pay now (the typical way) or pay later, little kids don't escape the piper when it comes to easily transmitted sicknesses. Virus will virus, let's be thankful the most kids are much healthier and "bullet proof" than kids a couple hundreds of years ago. My German immigrant great grandparents lost 4 out of 6 kids (although the oldest losses weren't actually "kids") during March 1886 in Dakota Territory. A truly sorrowful episode that my great grandparents probably never fully recovered from but it was far from unique for the era. My grandfather was part of the "2nd wave" family that came after 1886.

But you're like 75-80 so yeah, I guess you worry about the flu taking you out so I get your drift. I just turned 60 and think I'm still partly bullet-proof so I guess I'll roll the dice by not taking any more shots except maybe an occasional tetanus one. Everybody has choices to make, you make yours, I'll make mine...

One small correction. U.S. population is now about 332 million. About 35 years ago I got the flu and it was the sickest I ever been. I have been getting the flu shot since.

No, born in late 1962. My little avatar pic with the big mink is 20 years old. Maybe I should update it if I find another cool critter to hang with...

I had the flu 1 time that I knew it was the flu. The day before at work I had a dry cough that persisted all day. Skinned some critters that P.M. The next morning I was coughing up colorful phlegm, had a fever and my muscles hurt so bad I had trouble getting out of bed. Back in the day when you called a doc and prescribed meds over the phone.

Charles I hate to be the bearer of bad news but ur going to die someday no matter how many vaccines or cures they come up with. Quit worrying and live. Place I selected for eternity is a much better place than I own now anyway.

The sky is falling, the sky is falling!!! Man I miss the days b4 social media stupidness when one could be sick and not have to make a post out of it and get hundreds of shares. People today are weak, because of the fact they don’t get out and get exposed to things. My ma always said it was good to let the kids eat dirt, makes them tougher!! Lol, old saying, but lots of truth to it.


Long live the MAGA King

I had flue b and covid at the same time. So there is one.

Lots of people have it here now. I'm not surenif it flue or a cold but it's hitting my wife and boys now. The younger has a 101.5 temp when I checked him a few min ago.

I'm sure it will hit me if it does on Thursday so I won't be able to make it to my interview and testing. Confirmation email said they will be taking Temps befor hand.

To quote a good friend “I don’t want to die of the cheap stuff”. He means why die of something that is basically preventable, like not wearing our seatbelt, or skipping childhood vaccines, or skipping colon exams.

I don’t come here for medical research or opinions, either.
