All viruses mutate as a continuing process, sort of like evolution. If they didn't you would never catch another cold or flu as you can't catch the same one twice IIRC.

The best way you can save the life of another coal burner is to get vaccinated. That way you most likely won't get the flu and pass it on to someone really vulnerable, like pregnant women (I bet you know some), people who are on immune-suppressant drugs due to organ transplants (I bet you know at least one), people with underlying heart or lung conditions (you know some though you may not know they have the condition). You probably don't know, personally, a single soul who has died of a flu vaccine, though we all know OF someone's brother's aunt's neighbor's sister's uncle who did -- it's the urban legend thing.

So getting the flu shot is as much altruistic as it is anything else.

Don't know anyone like that. Guess I can continue to be "selfish" and not get a flu shot.

Like my grandmother said..."Ya gotta die SOMEDAY!!" Eventually, she was right. Of course, that was twenty years(every year) she said she might not make it to Christmas during Thanksgiving dinner.

In 1976, a mass immunisation programme in the States was brought in to combat a swine flu outbreak that was confined to a single military base and caused one death. Amid fears that the outbreak would become a repeat of the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, the vaccination programme was rushed in. By the time it was cancelled, one quarter of the population had been immunised.

About five hundred cases of GBS were reported afterwards, resulting in 25 deaths.
