I was vaccinated against smallpox back in the 1950's - still have the outline of the scar on my left shoulder to prove it. I guess there is some thought in the medical community that the standard "cowpox" vaccination (which is a multi-lingual pun) may still be of some good decades later. See the quote below. So how many of us here have been vaccinated? I would guess most of us here who were born prior to 1972 have been. Do you emotionally feel somewhat better if you have been?
