That 'you' is meant in a general sense. People, statisticians, OECD folks, whoever.

As for the vaccination rate:
I don't see how you get 95% for Switzerland (yet, hopefully) unless you rely on 1-shot numbers.

You'll have to ask the OECD, that's the figure that has been bandied about on the thread up to now.

No, "you" as in you. You were unsure over how the figure has arrived at 95%.

Yet you'd be surprised at the number of people, including such who claim to be scientists, who don't at all get it, and refuse to even entertain the notion that as a frame of reference, it actually works.
There was once a cult centering on the idea, which even tried to proof the theory: https://www.lockhaven.edu/~dsimanek/hollow/morrow.htm

Not in Switzerland, unfortunately no one asks. Unfortunate for those who have babies in childcare who are too young to be vaccinated.

No one asks about vaccination. This is a thing you discuss only with your children's paediatrician.

Completely off-topic:

Cool. I've no idea how many I've been to. I ought to add it up but probably nowhere near 100.

Which was your favourite to visit and what was your least favourite?
If it helps to reach the 100, they allow for example visiting the UK as 4 countries if you've been to each of the constituents. They also allow Yugoslavia + all the new constituents if you've been there. It also counts if your plane simply lands somewhere en-route, though I think this is cheating and do not count it in my total.

Most favourite place is a hard one, as they are all so different, but the place I'd most like to visit again is the interior of the DRC - Congo, though unfortunately it's too dangerous nowadays.

My least favourite is impossible to say. They all have their beauty and attraction, but if pushed I suppose today it would have to be Iraq. It's such a shame what has happened there over the years yet it is a fascinating country full of history and amazing sites (if they haven't been destroyed!).

My most memorable journey was crossing the Atlantic, when i had the good fortune to go by Concorde, and from where you could actually see the slight curvature of the earth.

Don't try to confuse their hard won beliefs with actual scientific fact.
