flu vaccine shortage...

Dear Editor,

Why isn't the Bush Administration being held accountable for the flu vaccine shortage? All over this country, senior and disabled citizens are standing in lines for hour after hour for a flu shot. Many of them are on respirators, using canes, in wheelchairs, or in pain. Many have gone to two, three or four clinics, showing up hours early, only to be told there won't be enough vaccine for everyone. Why didn't the government have a back-up plan when, for years, public health officials have cited the real risk of a flu pandemic? How can we trust the Bush Administration to protect us from a biological terrorist attack when it can't even manage to provide flu shots?
