H1N1 vaccine free for everyone in the country


The U.S. government is buying enough H1N1 vaccine--250 million doses--so that everyone who wants to be protected can get a free shot or nasal spray. There may be a small service fee.

Here's my report on what's new in the manufacture and distribution of the H1N1 vaccine, from a session Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Dr. Anne Schuchat, the director of the Center for Disease Control's Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, had with reporters in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on Thursday. They discussed the national vaccination program for the H1N1 virus, often called the swine flu.


where do I get my shot? How about at the local doctor's clinic I use in North Bergen NJ called the doctor is in.

where do I get my grand kids free flu shots against H1N1 virus in the BattleCreek Mi area with 49015 zipcode location, there ages are 2,4annd 6 years of age.

My understanding is that the H1N1 vaccine and nasal is suppose to be free anywhere in the United States. My oldest daughter called her Dr's office to see if they had it and they said "Yes, and there is a $25 charge for it." Are they suppose to charge for it? Is that legal?

Has anyone taken the time to ask "why is it free and why does our government want us all to take this H1N1 Vaccine?"

Read the drug insert. The vaccine is more dangerous than the flu.

in denver,colorado the city is charging $25 unless an illegal then free,also illegals can get before citizens of the city can.What good is it to be a democrat or a citizen?My state is democrat and to bad for us they want the illegals to get it.
