Vaccine doesn't PREVENT the flu, as I understand it -- it makes it less severe. I'm older and diabetic but it was my understanding from my doctor that somehow I'm less at risk that children so I shouldn't have one -- since the flu doesn't appear to be fatal, fine. I really don't care. I *do* object A LOT to sending 10% of American supply overseas to who-knows-who over there, though. Let not-Americans develop, manufacture and distribute their own, especially since there's not enough to go around here at home.
