Influenza Vaccine for This Year Does not Work as Thought

Editor's note: The efficacy of the influenza vaccine for this year is 23%, according to the CDC which still claims that getting the shot can help some people. It has been claimed for years that even if a influenza vaccine cannot prevent the viral infection from occurring, it can help the recovery from the flu illness. Those who do not trust influenza vaccine may want to make sure they have sufficient circulating vitamin D by taking vitamin D supplements in a dose of up to 5000 IU per day. If you do not like vitamin D supplements, make sure to get lots of exposure to the sun. Vitamin C has been known to has a similar efficacy of Tamiflu except that vitamin C work to shorten the duration of sickness at any time while Tamiflu needs to be used at the very beginning of the flu illness. Avoidance of high intake of sugar and sugar-loaded processed foods is a good way to boost your immunity against viral infections.

Vitamin D supplements can be purchased online or local health stores. Some sources suggest that one should use at least 2000 IU, preferably 5,000 IU per day. Vitamin D is an oil soluble "vitamin" but one can tolerate 10,000 IU per day....
