There's another $3,000 of tax money being paid out for a useless "drill". How hard can it be to figure out how many people can be vaccinated per hour per nurse?

Most people in this country are of the soundbite variety. They get told they need vaccinations, they go get them. Did you know that there is more than ample evidence that vaccinated populations are just as at risk to contract said disease they were vaccinated against?

I'm guessing no. Now I think there have been some been amazing advancements in medicine, vaccinations aren't necessarily one of the success stories. Polio, yes. Smallpox, yes. Now those were virulent viruses attacking a human population that had much more poor sanitation conditions than today. Which is why vaccination programs rarely work in third world countries.

You do the math
