One In Six Americans Have Had Swine Flu

Have you gotten your H1N1 prevention shot yet? Neither have I, nor anyone in my family!

Atlanta (AP) — Health officials now estimate that swine flu has sickened nearly fifty million Americans and killed nearly ten thousand. The new estimates mean about one in six Americans have had the illness. The figures were released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday. The CDC also estimates that two hundred thousand people have been hospitalized since the virus was first identified in April though mid-November…

But I’m sure we’ll finally see the dosages distributed, in the quantities promised by our government, once the actual virus has departed:

USA Today — For months, in an attempt to assuage fears about the H1N1 flu, also known as swine flu, the government built up the public’s expectation that shots would be widely available by mid-October. In July, officials predicted one hundred and twenty million doses by that time. When October rolled around, they dropped the estimate to forty million. On October fifth, all the government had available were about two point four million doses.

2,400,000 out of 120,000,000 means that they’ve delivered only two percent of the promised doses. Hell yes, let’s give them  a state  control of our entire health care system! More and more, it seems like their promises of “free health” actually mean that all of us will be “health free.”
