    Kelly, interesting thoughts. You cite the Canadian study, however at the end of the study they write, “Thus, the finding of an association between prior receipt of 2008–09 TIV and an increased risk of pH1N1 illness is not conclusive and needs to be investigated further, particularly since some other observational studies conducted in other countries have reported that seasonal vaccination had no influence or may have been associated with reduced chances of pH1N1 illness.” I was curious about your thoughts regarding this comment by the authors. To me it doesn’t sound like anyone is convinced one way or another by this study.

    • I can only speak for myself. I believe that we will learn much that we don’t know about viruses and vaccines. We know that viruses mutate and vaccines become worthless in stopping the new strain. The question gave me pause to think today. In the area of plant adaptability to a particular region we have learned that nature will cause a plant to adapt to the region it is being grown in so that its productivity and survivability are enhanced. We also know from history that new viruses introduced into a population can have devastating effects until the population develops an immunity to that virus. These situations make me wonder if vaccines in effect are a way to short circuit the natural development of immunities. In my experience, short cuts have their own costs in nature.
