Has anyone come across cost vs. benefit of vaccines,
as in 40,000 people die from car accidents, and maybe 100 die from chicken pox

So, you have 40 times more of a chance dying from a car accident than CP?

Is this a correct analogy?

Any charts out there that you know of to better put childhood diseases in perspective?

TIA
