Default Re: Flu Shots

What is amazing to me is that Dr's and other health officials have always had such a hard time getting people to take flu shots that they actually have to spend millions in advertising advising people to do so. Now this year a glitch came up in the manufacture of one of the suppliers and suddenly the enire population is demanding the shot and blaming the US Government for not having it! (Since when it is the responsibility of the Federal Government or even the State government to make flu vaccine) If you are in a high risk group then yes, get the flu shot, there are enough for those actually in need. If you are fairly healthy then wait and get it when the next batch becomes available or do what you can to remain flu free this year.
