Taking a flu vaccine?

I don't know how it's in other countries as for the obligatory to take a flue vaccine I'm not taking it for some years now and for my surprise when I do get flu I would get it easier than on times when I did take the flu vaccine. What made me think about that matter was when I discovered the fact Chickens are being vaccine too with some kind of a flue vaccine and that seemed to me to be quite odd.

It is not mandatory in France, but recommended for people above 60 and free. The vaccine for chicken is not for the same flu, and, like the human vaccine is not 100% efficient.

BTW I have a friend, over 60, it's interesting He told me He gets his flue less worse since He stopped taking this vaccine. I wonder if someone really checked this matter seriously.

@saritflor The only problem is that you can have several flu virus the same year, and the vaccine can have missed the "good" one. Having a flu "less worse" is possible if we caught in the past a similar virus (nearly the same).

Never took a flu vaccine and not because chickens are taking some others. The vaccines are just the virus in your body , so our imune system to be more strong, i don`t want to have some virus that pharmaceutical industry decides on my body. All my friend who took the vaccines they all got a bad flu, i got the flu but was as always, they had to go to the hospital. So thank you but no, still not taking the vaccine.

Hi Gaia, that is actually what I'm talking about somehow it seems to me that taking it do makes things worst. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who don't taking it.
