I wrote this on FB last month, “wow I am still alive, how did I make it through the year without getting the flu and I did not get the flu shot.” Another winter went by and no one in my house got the flu. I was on four airplane trips. Went to several concerts in big germy arenas. My kids were in school where basically every child in the class had the flu, and even my husband who works in germfest NYC and takes the dirty train and subway daily did not get the flu. And besides not getting the flu, there was not one sore throat, fever, or cold in my house for this entire school year. The last time my kids were on antibiotics was five years ago.
