To be fair, the CDC has a number of studies listed that they say do show the vaccine protecting others.

What I'm wondering about is a study that actually looked to see if the virus was surviving in the nasal and bronchial passages of the vaccinated. The same way the pertussis bacteria does in the vaccinated.

You mean that study has never been done in the past sixty years - since the flu vaccine was introduced? What are they waiting for? I guess the CDC is afraid of what it would find - the TRUTH!

I didn't say it hadn't been done. Just that I'm looking for one.
