I'll bet $5 that at least a couple of hundred won't get it that the 'government' is providing them!

1. Where on earth did you get the idea it would be free? Flu shots are never free.

I paid $25 for the last one I got, down at the local pharmacy where a folding table was set up.

3. I guess because I heard it on the news last night and because I've never paid for one.

5. So NYC school kids are going to get the shot free.....
I've gotten a flue shot every year for decades. Always have had to pay for 'em. Cheapest ones available around here are $30 available at the Visiting Nurse Association.

2. The H1N1 shot will not be free, unless your insurance pays for it.
Neither is the seasonal flu vaccine.

9. Where I got 'free' shots from: the news reported 9/16/09. Vaccine is free.

Sebelius confirmed that H1N1 vaccines will be free, but some healthcare providers may charge an administration fee. She added that the federal government is set to spend about $1.4 billion for states and hospitals to prepare for the virus.

4. A couple of people I know think that the gov't put computer chips in the vaccine.

Chips they will use to 'activate' the virus in conservatives, when Obama gives the word.


So... even if the shots are free... perhaps not too many. They're pretty fucking out there.

6. Yep, it's all part of Obama's population control scheme.
The vaccine is supposed to kill a bunch of people off. I expect a lot of teabaggers will avoid the shot.
