You're wrong. It's not as simple as another strain of the regular flu and it doesn't kills as many people as the normal flu. The problem people are worried about is mutations. The 1918 flu(Spanish flu), which had a high kill rate, didn't appear out of thin air. No flu appears out of thin air. The 1976 swine flu didn't appear out of thin air either and luckily for people back then it only killed one person...The vaccine hurt a lot more people. I hope what goes down this winter is closer to '76 than '18 in terms of severity of the flu(s). I know I'm not taking the shots either way because this whole development has shades of '76.
