  1. It would’ve been nice to see 5 out of 5 viruses efficacy. Of course, it’d be nice to see 100% efficacy of seatbelts in every motor vehicle crash.
    Regrettably, we have nothing whatsoever that has 100% efficacy, so we have to work with highly effective, or nothing.

    Mental note, have doctor administer the flu vaccine on this month’s visit (forgot last month’s visit).


  2. Heck, I’d settle for 100% efficacy of humans remembering to wear said seatbelts. That alone would bring down deaths from vehicular accidents down a significant amount.
