Researchers from universities and hospitals in Ontario, Canada scoured clinical trials to find people who had come down with the flu after being vaccinated for influenza. After narrowing down their search criteria to exclude studies without laboratory-confirmed influenza, proper placebo controls or full vaccination, the scientists ended up with 34 trials, covering 47 influenza seasons and involving nearly 95,000 participants.
