Serenity gal, you can blame the media so anxious to jump on the democratic bandwagon to proclaim the shortage in another attempt to paint Bush in an unfavorable light. These people don't consider, or even care about, the consequences of their actions.
In general, I'd disagree with you, as I happen to believe there's many that would back Bush up in any circumstance out of patriotic pride or whatnot, but in this instance I'd agree with you.
I didn't understand Kerry making that accusation, simply because he backed it up with nothing. And it's ironic because he's one who loves research and hitting the books and when I consider that, comparing it from his excellent debate skills and overall knowledge of the issues, he had nothing and indeed instances like that were his major Achilles heel.
I just don't know how this whole vaccination process works, so I just prefer to believe we must now set attention on fall 2005 and see to it we are more prepared next time.
Personally, I never get flu vaccines. Odds are if I do get it, it'll be another variant, and I really don't care for waiting in long lines where I'm the youngest person there by a good 40 years, and most those in line aren't full time residents, or even state residents at all (Arizona law states the moment you take a job, buy land, or put someone in school, you are a resident, and liable for state taxes). 'Sides, I still recall the Swine Flu Epidemic.
Yeah, I haven't gotten one since I was nine. I actually have an incredibly strong immune system (I've only been sick twice in a span of seven years). So absolutely no need for me to get one.
Yea, I've heard the CDC also come up often in this debate. I guess the vaccinations were contaminated or something. And generally, I absolutely believe that's how it should work. Children and the elderly should be the ones first up in getting these vaccinations. And if there's any remaining after that, which it may be a while until we see that happening, well, that'll be a greater debate.
