Flu Vaccination (Hong Kong)

Though it's said the flu vaccination is not 100% effective to all people, it is found it can still help to protect elderly from many diseases and prevent them from thousands of hospitalization (actually I want to say this can help government and society to save a lot of resources).

Besides, even the young taken the flu vaccination 100% effective, this would not weaken their immune system, instead can reduce the virus in circulation. Because their immune system may be strengthened to enhance their body resistance to virus and bacteria.

Thus in my point of view, flu vaccination is recommended to both young and the elderly, under the condition that the society or government have enough resource (tax?) to promote and improve the health of their citizens.

P.S. People allergic to eggs are not recommended to take the vaccination, because it is heard some flu vaccines are made from eggs.

雖然常聽見說「流感疫苗」不是百份之一百對所有人都有效,但是據報導致少它能保護長者免受多種其它非主流流感及減少他們住院和醫療費用(其實我想說這能幫助政府省去大量資源)

此外,即使年青人接受流感疫苗注射,雖然也是非百份之一百有效,但是也不會減弱他們的免疫能力,並反而會減少讓病毒和病菌散播。因為他們的免疫系統會因接受疫苗注射而提升,減少生病的機會。

所以,我想流感疫苗注射是值得向市民推廣(不管是年青人,還是長者)。不過,這都要在政府有足夠資源(稅款?)的大前題下

注意:聽說對蛋敏感人士是不適合打流感疫苗的,因為據聞有些疫苗是從蛋提鍊出來的。
