It's actually most people who have some kind of reaction. Flu-like symptoms, nausea, and or weakness. And it doesn't guarantee you won't catch the flu anyway. We get free flu shots at work - I always pass on that and stay healthy all winter while I have seen friends have to take a week off after the vaccine because they became ill. (And Google Reservatrol -- it's grape seed extract, not grapefruit seed.)

i wonder if the flu nasal spray has any significant problem as the shot definitely does. The nasal spray supposedly has active flu virus in it at extreme low quantity. Similar to homeopathy? Also, I suspect that they can't really put so much preservative, because it would kill the virus. This is not something I would want to subject myself with. I have enough sinus problems already. But I am curious.

Here is the very best info on Vitamin D. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/ We also have a lot of vitamin D info scattered throughout this forum, but the council may have it easier to search.

The reason vitamin D has became so important is the phobia about cholesterol. Since everyone has been cutting down on cholesterol like the doctor say there has been a deficiency of vitamin D it is so obvious. Your body uses cholesterol in the skin with sunlight to make vitamin D no cholesterol no vitamin D
