"The fiasco of the 1976 ‘swine flu affair’"

What may be coming--the past doesn't repeat but it rhymes--real soon.

I remember waiting in a huge line at my college for the shot when they handed out a paper listing possible side effects. There were many horrible effects listed. (With no probabilities attached, of course.) As this was my first time seeing such a warning, I got out of line and didn't get the shot.

I'm much older now and I've been given a number of such warnings. Heck, listen to ads for drugs on network TV in which they about half the ad listing all the terrible things that may happen if you take the drug. Again, with no probabilities of any kind given. Excuse me, but I think such "information" is worthless. Maybe worse than worthless.
