...who gets priority access to flu vaccinations?
-- TORONTO -- A grief-stricken father whose otherwise healthy teenage son died suddenly from the swine flu struggled to make sense of the tragedy Tuesday and urged other parents to keep a close eye on their ill children.As the father of a 13 year-old boy... this story sends shivers down my spine.
Paul Frustaglio said it took barely more than a day for the H1N1 flu virus to kill Evan - his "best friend" - who turned 13 last month. "He fell so quickly," Frustaglio told The Canadian Press. "I was watching him. I was there when he died."
Evan Frustaglio's death on Monday came on the same day as health authorities across Canada began rolling out a vaccination program against H1N1.Not a priority, huh? I guess that's easy for some government bureaucrat to say. And why did this kid have to go to a production line walk-in clinic? No family doctor? It took us six years to get a family physician here in Hastings County... how is that anywhere near acceptable?
The teen would not have been considered a priority for the flu shot because he wasn't in a high-risk group.
What's Dalton been doing with our tax dollars?
Worse yet... if you live in British Columbia... here's who the government is most worried about.
Seeing a pattern yet?
Thre's a lesson here, folks... friends don't let friends vote liberal.
