I believe vaccination is a good idea. On this issue, I would say it's my critical opinion.
Vaccines in their most basic forms are similar but not deadly pathogens, e.g. the first ever vaccine, cowpox, which protected against smallpox.
The cowpox was literally taken from the boils/cysts on a cowpox sufferer, and a healthy patient was cut with a cowpox infected scalpel.
(This is where the medical definition of vaccine ends and the corporate definition of vaccine begins)
Doing this is simple, transferring the pathogen from source to patient had to be done quickly or the pathogen would die and become ineffective.
Sometimes, the pathogen would not take for other reasons.
Other compounds are added which prevent these things from occurring, saving time, money and effort for all involved.
You are using the word vaccine which makes people think of the medical definition and demonising it. All I'm saying is, if you want to have a go at
the second definition, go right ahead, but don't scare people off the first definition by using a wide brush.
