Well, we're sort of in agreement on this. I don't give the industry a break - but the vaccine concept, yes. The expression is often "Don't throw out the baby with the bathwater.".

The health of the group should be of more concern than the individual freedom to choose.
Logically, I agree. The problem, as always, is implementation. Near-first-person anecdote:

Mrs. Wife teaches. One of the districts mandates flu shot or where face mask. This was true for several years. They did supply the flu shot, at least. This year, she told me she got her flu shot - and also the mandatory requirement is gone. Public schools in the USA, depending upon your state, require any number of the basic immunization (the serious diseases, mentioned early, and usually measles, chickenpox (rubella), and some others). This has proven an incredible health benefit. The herd has few carriers. The flu, because of the forced "crowds" of a school, makes sense . . . except it was only the teachers!

So - the health of the group concept is good for the serious killing/crippling pathogens. For the lesser evils, such as the flu, it should be a matter of choice. The only others at risk, after all, are others without the vaccination. An argument can be made for "so what's the difference", and I will preemptively answer it's a personnel gut feeling about risk/reward
