I might just suck on the teat of a cow with cowpox.


I'd rather not hear how you plan on vaccinating yourself against cholera, though. At least not around lunchtime.

It might work. Milkmaid skin.

For what it's worth, this year's flu vaccine is reportedly 62% effective -- in other words, if you are vaccinated, your odds of getting the flu are 62% lower than if you skip the vaccine.

That's not as effective as other major vaccines (e.g., MMR), but it's better than no vaccine at all.
