Who would’ve thought?

Earth-shattering news has been released from the US Center for Disease Control, declaring that unvaccinated children account for most pediatric flu deaths. Wuuuuut? Yeah, we never would have believed it either, but it’s true. According to a recent CDC study that looked at flu related deaths of nearly 300 children, only 26% ended up being vaccinated with a flu shot. In the same group of children, about half had an underlying high-risk medical condition, yet even among those only 31% were vaccinated. The study’s author concluded that the flu vaccine is linked to a reduced risk of flu-related deaths among children. Good thing we finally know why we have been getting shots for all those years.
