When the establishment gave the green light to finally give out all the vaccines (at 25 bucks a pop) THEY HAD SITTING ON THE SHELF not many showed up.
What’s really telling about this is Boston.com’s comment section to this article. It seems the floodgates had opened to the flu shot opposition and Boston.com apparently shut it down as it was getting started. Go figure?
Boston public health officials had hoped to inoculate 5,000 residents in Hyde Park yesterday against H1N1 – and another 5,000 today in West Roxbury – as part of a community vaccination drive that targets people most at risk for getting swine flu. The H1N1 vaccine is only being offered to those at greatest risk of complications and viral illness – people age 3 to 24, and adults 25 through 64 who suffer from asthma, heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic conditions. Regular seasonal flu shots were not offered this weekend.
By 3 p.m. yesterday, 715 people in Hyde Park had gotten their shots or nasal spray.
