Smallpox Scars Age Test

Today, smallpox vaccinations no longer occur. I realized a long time ago that I could roughly guess at someone's age based upon whether or not they have that scar. Recently, I noticed a non-American friend with the scar, even though they're younger than I expected. Thus, this completely useless poll.

Poll #1140886 Smallpox Vaccination Scar

Do you have a smallpox vaccination scar?

Yes
25(42.4%)
No
34(57.6%)

Your age in years

Where did you live when you received the vaccination?

North America
28(71.8%)
South America
0(0.0%)
Europe
6(15.4%)
Asia
4(10.3%)
Australia
0(0.0%)
Africa
0(0.0%)
Other
1(2.6%)

Note: it's OK to guess where you lived. I think I was in Texas when I received my vaccination, but I may have been living in Okinawa at the time. I'm not sure.

And I idly wonder how many people won't answer because they don't want to reveal their age? :)
