AP: Military To Get Mandatory Swine Flu Shots Soon

U.S. military troops will begin getting required swine flu shots in the next week to 10 days, with active duty forces deploying to war zones and other critical areas going to the front of the vaccine line.

Families of military members will receive their shots through the military bases, who will be working with state officials and get their own shipments of the vaccine. Renuart said it appears there is enough of the vaccine to meet the military's needs.

This has got to be the 3rd thread about this.

It is only mandatory if you don't get your primary care doctor to sign a doctor’s note saying you don't have to get the shot.

Or if you know a medic that can doctor your records for you (thanks JD)

If you can do ether of those things it will not be mandatory.

All swine flu related topics should be posted in the Swine flu and Other Diseases and Pandemics Discussion Forum

It's a good find, however I believe it has already been posted.

Edit to add: The thread can be found here:

Declaration of Thread Closed

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one moderator to dissolve the functionality of a thread which had connected members one with another and to assume among the powers of ATS, the ability to moderate which the Laws of Springer and of SkepticOverlord entitle them, that they should declare the causes which impel them to make closed the thread that was before this time open.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all threads are created equal, that they are endowed by their OP with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of a Happy Discussion that has never before been made. -- That to secure these rights, Moderators are instituted among Members, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, and SimonGray.

Whenever any Form of a new Thread becomes destructive of these ends, and doth repeat itself, it is the Right of the Moderator to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a closed Thread, closing it on such principles and organizing their powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect the Happiness of all Members.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Threads long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that members are more disposed to suffer, while duplicate threads are sufferable than to right themselves by using the complaint form to report it thereby abolishing the openness of a thread to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, when a trail of copy-cat discussions doth appear, when it become obvious that this discussion had been pursued before. Moderators evinces a design to reduce duplicate threads, it is their right, it is their duty, to close such duplicate Threads, and to provide new Guards for the future security of existing Threads that such things be discussed in their proper place, credit being given to, and discussion being contained in, the original thread.
