Is your family knowledgeable in diagnosing the flu? Most people that think they have it- don't.

Recently I read something disappointing; that the flu vaccine is only about 50% effective at best, and gradually loses efficacy over time. Economists determined it's probably not worth the cost for healthy adults to get it, but only cost effective for children and the elderly, and anyone else at higher risk. I'm required to get it though, and I'd probably get vaccinated even if I wasn't considering it's "free" on my HDHP (high deductible health plan).
