I voted chicken pox because I had it as a child - I would vote for smallpox as I am the generation where it had been mandantory in my country. That's it.
I am not against it but I am allergic against everything. My last pertussis vaccination - I think I had been anywhere in my 20ies - almost killed me due to anaphylactic shock. That made me pretty careful.
If I am going to a high-risk-area I will probably have to get the mandantory immunizations - so I simply dont go to these places any more.

I don't see a way to do that except perhaps using my Admin ability to edit the poll. Smilie

It is working again now:

The reason was that we lost the "change vote" feature when I disabled write-ins (to keep this poll pegged to the CDC attachment).

PS: So, please don't write any any more vaccines in this poll, so we can keep this poll pegged to the CDC PDF (attached before) but permit vote changes.

Your list is interesting. Several times in past few days I was offered a vaccine against "Pneumonia". Well my doctor never mentioned that and I was totally locked in "get h1n1" mode so I didn't even want to talk about other vaccines. This morning I got to thinking about it and I realized that I have always considered pneumonia to be a symptom not a single disease. Wilipedia seems to agree "Treatment depends on the cause of pneumonia; bacterial pneumonia is treated with antibiotics." Maybe it was that "Pneumococcal (polysaccharide)" thing? If not I wonder what it was? (And yes, I realize now that I should have asked the nurses who were pushing it.)

I recently took the Pneumococcal (polysaccharide) - Pneumonia vaccine. It is a lot of extra antibodies for very little money. Better to have a lot of friendly antibodies in reserve. It is easy and cheap.

Many folks, from what I read, get Pneumonia when the are in the hospital for something else..... a different infection, an accident, etc.

Actually, according to the CDN PDF file, I am not in the risk group that need the Pneumonia vaccine, but since I travel overseas a lot, I think it is a good idea anyway. I think I paid around $30 USD for my shot.

Small money. Lots of friendly antibodies looking after me Smilie
