Kids may get swine flu shots first

— Schoolchildren could be first in line for swine flu vaccine this fall — and schools are being put on notice that they might even be turned into shot clinics.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Tuesday she is urging school superintendents around the country to spend the summer preparing for that possibility, if the government goes ahead with mass vaccinations.

“If you think about vaccinating kids, schools are the logical place,” Sebelius told The Associated Press.

No decision has been made yet on whether and how to vaccinate millions of Americans against the new flu strain that the World Health Organization last week formally dubbed a pandemic, meaning it now is circulating the globe unchecked.

"formally dubbed a pandemic"

Yep. "Dubbed" is the word. Guess kind of like cold viruses spread over many countries and likewise would be called a "pandemic".

Anyway, this is a good opportunity, while the hype is in the public, to promote additional mandatory vaccinations to kids and provide the facility to make sure there are no escapes. Kids are most susceptible to damage and so must catch them early. Otherwise, they may not suffer damage and be able to think for themselves. If we keep them suffering, in pain, unable to think past frivolous things, they most likely won't object to being controlled, further poisoned, and taxed out the ying-yang.
