Obama daughters get H1N1 vaccine

There’s been a lot of hay that the H1N1 vaccines were unsafe because they’d been rushed to market — part of a larger nefarious conspiracy. Right-wing media in particular emphasized the dangers of vaccination.

Catherine Mccormick-Lelyveld, press secretary for First Lady Michelle Obama, blogged that all four Obamas were given the seasonal flu vaccine, and the daughters were also vaccinated with the H1N1 last week when it became available in Washington, D.C.

Children are most at risk for H1N1, health officials said.

Even with the negative hype, last week we reported that vaccines were in short supply in the Glendale area; patients should check with their doctor for updates on vaccine availability.
