While the article touts that they are going to "deputize" dentists, EMTs, and pharmacists into giving "the flu vaccine" the one thing they don't point out is that there's still not a vaccine for swine flu because it's mutating too fast; current strains are showing increasing resistance to tamiflu and antivirals.
What will be interesting to watch is if the big pharmacies will allow their employees
to give the shots -- it's one thing if it's nurses from the health department or private contractors -- but using their employees opens their corporations up to liability. Can't you see the ads now?
