I am a antivaxxer and I am not misinformed.
You mean mandatory vaccinations for the flu? It's hardly a dangerous disease for the majority.You're not going to accomplish this by advocating individual choice. You need to advocate policy change. You're not going to accomplish herd immunity without government support.
As for now, I'm just following the recommendations issued by the institute of public health in my country.
No, I mean issuing recommendations that the average adult get the shot, perhaps in combination with making it free. Like it's apparently done in the US (with caveats when it comes to the free part).
Yeah it should be free to anyone who wants it. It's normally just done with more dangerous viruses like the swine influenza.
The effectiveness declines over time because of the shrinking antibody population. If you take it now, it will be way less effective by the time the flu season peaks. Flu season is shifting a lot, more to January and February nowadays. So recommendation is to get the shot more towards the end of November. So if you take it now, you get a nice false sense of security.
It can be extremely dangerous, and the more carriers the higher risk of mutations.
