But he Might have been worse off without the vaccine.   Don't forget 
that flu vaccines reduce the incidence of death by about 85%, and 
that is also counting the elderly generation along with the 
immuno-compromised.  So, it may not have been a waste at all.  I 
remember one year without the flu shot.  Fortunately I survived that 
and ever since then I do get it.  It is too great a risk without it.
