It is essential to vaccinate for the flu. See https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/featured/1814679/health-department-confirmed-flu-cases-in-nyc-up-77.html
If you don’t vaccinate for the flu, it’s your fault when people due! Because there are cancer parents who can’t vaccinate. It’s your comfort vs. their life.
I just heard a story where a young boy died from the flu because the mother listened to Facebook rumor encouraging not to take Tameflu.
To reform rabbi: You are clearly not a reform rabbi. They write much better than you.
Its not even clear why we still need to be debating the need for vaccination. One would have assumed that the intelligent posters here on YWN wouldn’t require education on the risks (both to themselves and their families) but as RR and Reb Eliezer note, to vulnerable populations with whom they come into contact.
