  •  And children are the worst vectors (0+ / 0-)

    From my experience as a parent, I'd estimate that for every child under 8 or so that gets sick with any disease involving coughing or snot, 4-5 other people will also get sick. They just don't have the maturity to practice good hygiene reliably. I've always thought it made more sense to vaccinate kids than elderly for that reason, if you have to ration vaccine.

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
