    I agree. It is just like the Hepatitis B series requirement as far as I am concerned. Granted, the effective rate is about 60%, so obviously, the more people who get it, the more everyone will be protected.

    Do we know what the long term implications are? If the vaccine is so effective how come we have more cases of the flu every year?
