There is no perfect remedy to the threat of influenza. The scientific community studies the viral strains that are likely to attack the population during the upcoming season, and production is ramped up on vaccine based on scientific recommendations far enough ahead of time so that they can try their humanly best to get ahead of the virus.
Do any of the doubters really believe that all this effort is just done by the scientific community, the producers of the vaccine, the CDC and the WHO for selfish gain or to try to harm us? Really?
Actual evidence shows that the vaccine has been 60% effective. That means if everyone would just go ahead and gain the immunity, we'd see a lot fewer deaths and hospital visits. In Minnesota alone this season (through 12/31/2012) we've suffered 27 deaths (including people in the prime of their life) and 1,100 hospital visits. Vaccine would have not reduced those numbers to zero. But I'd feel a lot better going out in public if more people were taking the vaccine seriously and thus reducing the probability of spreading this year's virus. There are 47 American states where this is a serious issue.
