The best way to prevent the spread of this flu, like any other strain, is to have susceptible populations vaccinated against it. Widespread and ill-founded fears of the vaccine are going to be, I suspect, the single largest factor in ensuring that H1N1 claims many more victims than it should.
Sasha and Malia given H1N1 vaccinations
Malia and Sasha Obama were given the H1N1 flu vaccine last week, the White House disclosed today as a case of H1N1 was confirmed at the private school campus 11-year-old Malia attends.
The girls received the vaccine after it became available to Washington, D.C., school children, a spokeswoman for first lady Michelle Obama said today.
The girls' H1N1 vaccine was administered by a White House physician, who applied for and received the vaccine from the district's Department of Health, using the same process as district vaccination sites, Lelyveld said.
Meanwhile, the Sidwell Friends School told parents Wednesday of a confirmed case of H1N1 in its Upper School. Malia attends Sidwell's Middle School, located in Washington on the same 15-acre campus as the Upper School. She is in the sixth grade.
Sasha Obama, 8, attends Sidwell's Lower School, located in suburban Bethesda, Md. She is in the third grade.
