and just as Likely to off yourself as dying from flu..
Inject myself every year with rotten eggs and viruses?...no thanks.
And why is that number so concentrated with people that already have an existing illness or weakened immune system? Because we do not have massive outbreaks amongst the other high risk population. Young children who have not developed a strong immunity are high risk in a dangerous environment. People not getting vaccinations leads to a drop in herd immunity which could cause significant outbreaks to occur. As more outbreaks occur, there is more chance of mutations resulting in lack of or new biomarkers.
