I am saying that is ridiculous. It is about the money.
Over 30 states are in the midst of a flu outbreak and many that they planned to get the shot will no longer need it. The body's immunity will last for years while the vaccine immunity lasts a few months.
I listened to people taking calls from patients today and this particular Dr. Office charges $35 for a regular flu shot if you don't have insurance and $5 if you do have insurance. No telling what an H1N1 will cost.
If the season goes buy and they don't sell all the vaccine it hits the profit.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but has there even been a "push" this hard for a seasonal vaccine?
This is getting beyond stupid. . . .
How bad is H1N1? I see a lot of people here saying they had it, their entire family had it, or someone they knew had it. Here in Hawaii i haven't heard of a single person infected. No one I know has/had it, nobody that people I know know has had it. Is it just because we are pretty much isolated (2000 miles from anywhere )? or is it because you all know a lot of people ?
Could it be, that they know the world economy is NEVER going to recover or BOOM the way it used to!
