Our government (not) at work

Our government at work: “A new study [by N.I.H. researchers] based on more than three decades of U.S. data suggests that giving flu shots to the elderly hasn’t saved any lives.”

“We think the best way to help the elderly is to vaccinate them.” CDC epidemiologist William Thompson.

Help them by doing something that doesn’t do any good? Hmmmm.

I question the validity of the NIH study.
