The flu shots this year MISSED the target… They guessed wrong!!
- Joe Lyddon

There are many strains of flu virus. The basic flu shot contains 3 flu strains. There is another with 4 strains but most insurance companies won’t pay for it. My understanding is that both flu shots do include the H3N2 virus which is the really nasty one and most resistant to vaccines. So if you get the H3 flu then the vaccine will be less effective but if you get another strain of flu, the vaccine will be more effective.
