Small Swine

Phase one of the roll out of the influenza A H1N1 pandemic vaccines will begin next week and among the first to receive will be “essential decision makers” comprising parliamentarians, members of the judiciary, including judges, “captains of industry, key non-governmental organisations (and) people in the media”…

it doesnt amaze me that those in authority see it fit to seek their own interests before the general populace… i rememeber watching one of the US Cable Networks and the fuss made when Obama and his wife elected to forgo preferential treatment… and when the kids… who are in public school… were getting it as well…

He advised members of the public not to visit health centres to get vaccines as “the ministry in collaboration with the private sector health facilities and other authorities identified the priority groups and the ministry will approach all groups for proper administration.”

i eh have nuttin else to say… draw your own opinion…

    In most countries, government officials, healthcare workers and police are the first ones to be imunized, thats a WHO recommendation. I have no idea why people of the media would get prefferential treatment? Unless the media is controlled by the government,lol.

    The “animal” word for Parliamentarians seem appropriate.

    Can you get swine flu from kissing ass? If yes, then that is why Parliamentarians are being immunized first.
