it was ok
bookshelves: shortstories

While I really like everything else by Mira Grant that I've read, this one didn't quite do it for me. One major problem I had with it: if the pathogens have already been released and people were already symptomatic, inoculating people with a vaccine wouldn't actually do anything. Once you've had a pathogen introduced to your immune system, introducing MORE of the pathogen (which is what a vaccine does) would do very little to protect you.

I'm sad that this shortshort story wasn't better. Still worth reading if you're a big fan of Mira Grant, but not as fantastic or enjoyable as her other works.
