Default Re: Since it's Flu season...

Most people do not distinguish between flu and the common cold.

A cold can put you in bed. Flu can put you in the ground. More people died of the 1919 'flu epidemic than died in WWI. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1918_flu_pandemic

There is much that is wrong with "big pharma", but vaccination is one of the greatest achievements in public health.
