What I wonder is how many people were actually planning on getting a flu shot before it was reported that there was a shortage.

I'm going to be interested (as one who has never felt the need for a flu shot) in what the season-ending numbers will end up being...I almost would be willing to make a bet that the totals won't show much of any increase in those that got the flu.

This is getting ridiculous. Don't these people know that camping outside to wait in line for a flu shot only increases your chances of getting sick in the first place!

Simply a false assertion. Millions of doses are consumed every year.

Consider if gas stations suddenly had only 1/2 of the supply of gasoline. You would see lines and unruly behavior there also.

"Betty Castor comforts the victims in long line and blames our government."

Then Betty Castor should become a scientist or invest in biotech to support the industry.

well, maybe you are right...Im speaking of around here and also it was quoted on Fox News last night, that there is never a "panic" for flu shots and now all of a sudden there is, because of the fact that less if available......

Standing in line like communists in a communist wonderland. If Kerry wins it will be like that for milk and bread.
