re: #108 Gus 802
I wonder if active duty military members are being encouraged to to refuse H1N1 vaccinations? i think that would be interfering with national security.
A vaccine targeting the novel Influenza A(H1N1) virus is being developed and may be available as early as October 2009. The Department of Defense will receive vaccine from the DoD stockpile, as well as national stockpiles. With few exceptions, use of these doses of vaccine from both stockpiles is to protect those responsible for completing DoD operational missions. This vaccine may be allocated to Active Duty members, Reservists, federalized National Guard, DoD civilians, and contractors. The amount of vaccine for other segments of the DoD community will be determined according to national allocation guidance based on existing policy and changes in disease epidemiology.vaccines.mil
