Health Care Quote of the Week-Wall Street and the H1N1 Vaccine November 12, 2009

“Goldman Sachs, like other responsible employers, has requested vaccine and will supply it only to employees who qualify,” spokesman Ed Canaday said.

Granted, it was only 200 doses,but are they really giving it to the high risk groups who should be first in line? Meanwhile, there are lines forming in various places and ordinary people are waiting hours to receive the H1N1 flu vaccine. My coworker had to take the day off to get the vaccine for herself and her daughter this week. I read of one neighborhood pharmacy where 700 people showed up-some from 35 miles away in another town–to see if they could be vaccinated.

Many people around the world are worried about when they will be able to receive their vaccine.

According to the AP wire, Morgan Stanley also received 1,000 vaccine doses, but turned them over to local hospitals when they learned that they had been “served first”.

My responsible employer is offering on-site flu shots and mammograms, but no swine flu vaccine that I know of. Has your employer requested H1N1 vaccine doses-let me know!
