Sydney is approaching 80 cases, I have never got the flu from a flu shot. Here's another article that has stirred the fear pot again
Statically it's correct but it doesn't need to scare people like this, I was out and about in the City today and every second person is coughing or sneezing, no one is really bothered. I haven't seen one person wearing a face mask, what can you do. The rest of the country seem terrified by us, I just don't think they realise that it's just a matter of time before it spreads nation wide. We're further south so it gets colder here first.
Here's a link to our local reporting of confirmed cases, mind you Melbourne and Victoria have stopped counting, it's just too late here, but hey, it is winter.
