I’m finding it odd how every year 100’S of woman are hospitalized for the flu but this year I wasn’t offered the vaccine and there was no mention of it. But when I ask anyone this they say well it’s there but corona... so does anyone actually know the truth or everything the answer is corona?

I know the truth but the answer is everything is corona. I was actually offered/my Dr drove me crazy to take the flu vaccine. I denied.

Not sure I’m understanding this. Why couldn’t you get a flu vaccine? It was highly recommended for this year - so there should not be two epidemics at the same time. We got vaccinated for flu in October (as usual).

My children and I were all given the flu vaccine.
I have a few nieces with pertussis now.
Croup and chicken pox are also going around.

It's weird that you weren't offered the flu shot. All the doctors I know were telling people to get it early this year because there would be a shortage with more people than usual getting the shot. Plus they were worried that getting sick with covid and the flu at the same time could be really bad. My family all got the flu shot in September already.

It turns out that all the precautions people are taking against covid are keeping the flu from spreading this year. Most doctors and hospitals are seeing a major decrease in the flu among their patients this winter.

Where I live there are no precautions unless someone wants to wear a mask and yet I wasn’t offered the flu vaccine which in past years was offered more then once.

Maybe your community didn't offer it this year. Clearly, other people out there have a different experience. You sound disappointed that more people aren't suffering from the flu or something.

No I’m feeling more and more like everything is being blamed on covid!!
Heart attacks
Strokes
Infections
So many of these have been mistreated cause it must be covid. Suddenly flu is nothing cause there is covid my question is if half the people would take flu tests would it be positive??

Maybe where you live or the doctor you go to didn't offer it. Where I live and the local media here talked about making sure to get the flu vaccine especially this year because of COVID and wanting to prevent flu going around as much as possible. People were talking about wanting to make sure to get it early because they were worried that so many more people who get it this year BECAUSE it was being said it was especially important to get it this year and people were worried that vaccines may run out (when I say "people" I mean people I know and people on local social media). My husband and my kids, and I all got the flu vaccine this year and we all go to different medical practices and were offered it at all of them.

Just look at excess deaths if you're concerned.

My kids got flu shots and my husband also. My kids were sick a few times this season but it was not covid .I work with little kids and I made a lot of changes to our day that includes more hand washing more on top of not putting things in our mouth or if we do cleaning them. Also washing bedding more often. And I am finding not as many runny noses and if they get one it clears up faster less ear infections also. If I wipe a nose I wash my hands it's really interesting to see such a big difference.

What are your feelings based on? People are being treated for the presenting problem. People are also testing for flu and showing positive results. How many people do you know who were mistreated? Why aren't people testing instead of making assumptions? Your post is very confusing.
