I’m a high-risk individual. I’m on two different immunosuppressant drugs, Immuran and Remicade. I am considered to be a high-risk to get H1N1.
However, I was informed that to avoid getting the flu, you should stay away from large crowds. Alas, even if I wanted to stand in line for five-plus hours for a shot, it would be counter-productive and I would likely get more sick from standing there than not.
So explain to me how a ‘high-risk’ person was supposed to get vaccinated in this ‘mass roll-out’ of vaccinations.
How would I, my 16-month-old daughter (who by the way wouldn’t last five hours in line if her life depended on it), and my wife (a teacher surrounded by kids and germs all day — but is not considered high-risk?) get vaccinated?
Since it appears we have no answer yet, it’s a good thing I decided to update my will this week.
