@Chark @Clark @Stocktwits Before resorting to name-calling, first note that the study you have forwarded was from 2012 Jun 15 - the novel coronavirus COVID19 was first detected in December 2019 in China - therefore, the study did not test for it. Further, the study does not suggest that having the flu vaccine will test positive for COVID19 - which is the claim you have forwarded. The study is interesting nonetheless b/c "participants who received TIV had higher risk of ARI associated with confirmed noninfluenza respiratory virus infection" The majority of the noninfluenza respiratory virus detections were rhinoviruses and coxsackie/echoviruses. Most respiratory virus detections occurred in March 2009, shortly after a period of peak seasonal influenza activity in February 2009.
