  1. “However, even an imperfect vaccine can help prevent or lessen the severity of illness, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control. Everyone age 6 months and older is recommended to get a vaccination.”

    A chance at lessening the severity is worth it to me. Not you?

    1. I really, really hate to say this, but after the (ongoing) nutrition disaster, I have zero confidence in medical advice from the federal government, including the CDC, which thinks that its purview includes guns. Please attempt to convince me that I should have more.

      1. Read at medical journals for information about mismatched influenza vaccine to support or weaken your skepticism. You’ll find that the CDC is disseminating the same information you can find in the New England Journal of Medicine, the Lancet, and so forth. You’ll also find that the scientists writing about nutrition are not the same ones who are writing about infectious diseases.

        Worrying about whether scientific research is being disseminated by “the Federal government” or “the CDC” seems as silly to me as arguing that because someone at NASA says the SLS will launch this century, “NASA” also can’t be trusted to disseminate findings by Kepler on exoplanet discoveries.

        The NASA project scientists working with Kepler are not the NASA people who say breathless things about SLS, and the researchers at the CDC working on nutrition are not the doctors who are trying to mitigate influenza.
