    Can anyone with factual data tell folks how many cases of death took the flu shot and how many died without taking the flu shot. That data seems very important especially when many people think that you get the flu when get a flu shot. I hear that all the time. Note. I have gotten a flu shot every year for the past 31 years and I never once got the flu. Got colds and sore throats but never got the flu.

    We need more facts please more data.
