PSA time. It seems there are two major misconceptions about the flu vaccine:
1. That it prevents all strains of flu, and without fail. (It's a concoction based on the strains predicted most likely to appear that year, and the vaccine won't work for every single person even if the predicted flu strains are correct.)
2. That it prevents "stomach flu." ("The flu," short for influenza, is respiratory. "Stomach flu" is not influenza at all, so the vaccine doesn't prevent it. I don't know why it's called flu, because it isn't.)
Now you know. *musical trill*
