Race for H1N1 vaccine is on?

Do you know anyone that's desperate to get the H1N1 vaccine? Me either. I know people who are debating whether they should get it, or who say they plan on it, but people aren't tripping over themselves to get it. And most people I know are avoiding this vaccine like the plague it is.

Articles like these are mind games to implant the impression that there is a massive demand for this vaccine, and you should be like everyone else and get yours. These psy-ops have been going on for months, with the military running drills simulating rioting citizens bum-rushing vaccination clinics desperate to get their vaccine, when in reality the only reason the military would be used is if the government made these vaccinations mandatory and the public revolted.

    USA Today -

    SAN FRANCISCO — The great H1N1 vaccine hunt has begun, with Americans setting their phones to speed-dial the local health department and pulling kids out of school at the hint shots might be available at a flu clinic.

    More is on the way. There were 30 million doses of the vaccine available for states to order as of Monday, says Anne Schuchat, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Disease at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    That number is lower than 40 million doses the CDC had hoped to have available by the end of October. Production problems and delays caused the shortfall.

    So for now, it takes skill, tenacity and sometimes luck to get the coveted shots and squirts.
