My only thought when considering a flu vaccine has always been I’m healthy, I’ll take my chances. I never considered that me getting a shot might save someone’s life. Damn.
It’s fascinating to actually do the math. If the vaccine is 50% effective on me and this is how many people I expose if I do get sick, and this is how many young & old people die each year from the flu... Okay, this year I’ll get the shot.
