Prisoners to get precious swine flu shots before you - BostonHerald.com
Or is the Boston Herald not big enough for this forum, if so move it to 2.0. Looks like it's not just Texas this is happening, and I happen to agree with the State Sen on this one.Thousands of state inmates will get coveted swine-flu vaccinations weeks before law-abiding Bay Staters - who foot the bill for prisons - have a shot at protecting themselves, state public health officials have decided.
The prison pampering has one lawmaker questioning the con-voluted flu preparation.
“I can think of a number of populations that are more needy and vulnerable than prisoners,” said state Sen. Mark Montigny (D-New Bedford), who co-chairs the legislative committee on public health.
