Yeah, because we found out that in the 2008-2009 season, those that got flu shots and still got the flu, were sicker than those that didn't get the shot and caught the flu.
We also know that flu shots are made up ahead of time before any outbreak actually occurs. This is based on observation in places like China and India. The problem is, makig them ahead of time is a gamble. There may be signs of a particular virus beginning an outbreak but as has happened more than once before, sometimes the virus that eventually does break out ain't the one the pre-made flu shots were made for.
