    Say we reach a point where we have offered everyone over 65 the vaccine, with maybe 95% taking it. compared to how many for a flu vaccination normally?
    A vaccine over 90% efficacious, versus what for the flu? (hit or miss, depending on the strain and the vaccine)

    At what point are the wider effects on society of these diseases comparable?
