As H1N1 vaccine supplies dwindle, healthy Toronto adults are being told to step aside for higher-risk people.
Are you worried about the swine flu?
Then later said there are more people than they expected to get the flu shot. Eh ?? What ??
Then they refused to open more clinics and run 24 hrs, claiming not enough staff etc to handle the load
Now they are saying there are not enough vaccines next week as additional supplies will be delayed.
Lack of planning + Lack of clinics/staff + Delayed vaccine supply = Deaths
As always, glad to see government efficiency and common sense at work in planning anything. Oh sure, they are trying their best...but as always, late and missing the target.

swine flu is utterly ridiculous. The normal Flu that we're all used to has an astornomically larger impact on the enitre
World than swine flu.
Quote from the World Health Organization (WHO) about annual Flu outbreaks globally, "Although difficult to assess, these annual epidemics are
thought to result in between three and five million cases of severe illness and between 250 000 and 500000 deaths every year around the world."(www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/
Compare the numbers associated with swine Flu:
"As of 25 October 2009, worldwide there have been more than 440,000 laboratory confirmed cases of pandemic influenza
H1N1 2009 and over 5700 deaths reported to WHO."(www.who.int/
Can someone please explain to me why such panic exists dueto the swine flu? Seriously people, this is insane!
