    "I'm going to vote against this," Christie said before the 15-1 vote. "You don't die from the flu."
    Each year, tens of thousands of Americans die each year from influenza.  Part of the problem is that people don't know what the flu is, they think that it's just another word for the cold.

    I have to assume that at least one of the 15 who voted yes tried to inform her that many people die from the flu. But I am not surprised that it did sink in. The anti-vaxers are too committed to their opposition to consider facts.  I've encountered anti-vaxers who were so committed to their cause that even when they were forced to accept that vaccines saved lives, resorted to Social Darwinism, claiming that the people who were saved were weaklings anyway.
