Missed Shot

A couple days ago, the Chronicle ran a story by Cindy George that indicates that the Swine Flu vaccine is in much shorter supply than was earlier predicted. The CDC originally promised 120 million doses would be available by now, but only 10% of them actually are. And unlike seasonal flu vaccines, it is not being distributed by private companies, it's distribution is being handled by the Federal Government. But to add insult to deadly injury Kathleen Sibelius Secretary of Health and Human Services has decided that swine flu vaccine stockpiles aren't thin enough as it is so she is going to abscond with 10% of the supply, paid for by US taxpayers, and give it away to other countries.
