"...As tent city continues to grow since it first popped up about a month ago, so do concerns about what protesters are bringing with them.
Theres no smell, theres no odor. No one is sick, said Philip OConnell of Occupy Boston.
There is rising concern that the occupiers may be a public health hazard because they could be spreading germs and attracting rodents. On Wednesday, Bostons Public Health Commissioner walked tent city.
We want to make sure there arent problems here, said Lisa Timberlake of the Boston Public Health Commission..."

3. They got a clean bill today, and the city is offering a free flu shot clinic for the camp.
They got passing grades on everything, including food safety and the medical tent. You need to look at the video to get a true sense of the story. The health commissioner agreed that they are doing a good job of keeping everything shipshape. There are no rats, no rodents, and the only concern is for people who are frail when the weather turns colder.

Oakland looks terrible, because of police actions...
