Would you take a SARS vaccine if they had one? Why or why not?

Also, does the spread of this new virus sway your opinion about the need to vaccinate against deadly diseases?

Of course not, jmo. Any more than I would take a vaccine for the common cold, which CAN be "a deadly illness", but most often is not.

Last I heard, which was a few days ago, so it might have changed, the death rate from SARS was 4%. Even though there have been some cases reported here in Houston (but no deaths), I am not overly concerned.

Keep your immunity high (your body in PH balance, rested, nutrified, etc), wash your hands, etc. JMO

More than likely yes- as I would NOT depend on the apparent good health of myself & family to protect us. --Of all those that have died from it, I hardly think they were overwhelmingly in poor health to begin with.

This opinion is in full agreement with my pro-vaccine stance.

I happen to agree with Miki, if fact she has said everything I was going to.
