Obama calls all his followers to get flu jab

[ Maybe it would help “catapult the propaganda” to see all the leaders of this country (including Mr. Obama, of course) get their flu shots on live national TV.  I am sure MSNBC could set this up…  Let’s start with the “royal family” and then move on to the members of Congress and the Senate.  And let’s not forget the members of the CIA, Homeland Security, etc.  It would be inspiring to watch these leaders and their families — esp. the small kids and pregnant mothers — all line up to get vaccinated (all for the sake of the greater good, of course).  What better way to reassure a wary public that a little mercury and squalene won’t hurt anybody. ]


Obama says Americans should get swine flu vaccine

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama says that while swine flu vaccine will be voluntary, the government will “strongly recommend” that people get it.

Obama was briefed Tuesday on the nation’s preparedness for swine flu by senior officials, including Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Homeland Security Janet Napolitano. He spoke afterward from the Rose Garden.

Obama said that the federal government is preparing at all levels for this fall’s expected surge in swine flu cases. He said, “I don’t want anybody to be alarmed, but I do want everyone to be prepared.”

A White House report suggests up to half the U.S. population could be infected. Vaccine development is ongoing and it is likely to be available by October.
