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

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!

"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.

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

Why are there long lines in the first place? Are these "clinics" at supermarkets and drugstores the only places to get shots? Can't a person who is in the "at risk" category get one from their doctor without standing in line for hours at the local Safeway or Costco? I won't be getting one since I don't fit into these categories, but I'm genuinely curious about this. I would guess that part of the reason for the long lines is panic and fear at not being able to get a shot, but can't a person get one from their doctor?

Any bets that the unruly behavior was planned by members of the DNC? Just looking for a reason to start trouble and then blame Bush?

I don't get this! I've never received a flu shot, ever, (and I haven't been sick in over 15 years) but I was under the impression that the elderly, or the children were given these flu shots by their doctors in the doctor's office! Is this how it is done every year??

Before my mother and step-father passed away, they got their shots in the doctor's office. This is nuts!

This is so freaking ridiculous. Last fall I was pregnant with my third baby. I was talking to the doctor when I asked about getting the flu shot, and if it would be difficult to get. Within a couple of minutes, a nurse walked in and gave me my shot. The OB said that the shortage was overexaggerated because he didn't know of any doctors who didn't have them for their patients.

Since when are the so called old people supposed to get everything. My son has Down Syndrome and is susapble to every little bug that comes along. My wife works in a preschool and gets every little bug that comes along too. Some parents just drop their kids off there no matter what, because they have to go to work then the teachers get sick. and most of the preschools do NOT have health ins. for their employees. Most of the old people are in better shape than I am & they are demanding more than their fair share!

What's the big friggin' deal? Is this flu bug expected to be worse than normal? Most of the people that the flu does kill have arrived at that "time" anyways.

The only people that really need this shot are seasoned citizens, but many get it just for the hell of it.

This whole flu shot thing is absolutely bizarre. My grown daughters (not conservatives, yet)are hooting and making jokes about it.

One way to turn a crowd of Florida senior citizens into a lynch mob. Tell them there's shortage of flu shots.

It's the media who's inciting the panic.

What is it with these flu shots? I have never had a flu shot. I get maybe one cold a year. I can't remember the last time I had a full-blown flu.

Why has it become so necessary for healthy American adults to get one? Go without and if you catch a cold/flu, deal with it!!!

I can understand for the elderly, but for the rest of us?

Does anyone know whether one of the larger group of recipients are HIV positive people? Or do they not get flu vaccines at all?

Betty Castor comforts the victims in long line and blames our government. It is a consequence of the Clinton's administrations policy to make the flu shots affordable. Price is cheap, product is not available. La La land thinking!
