Skipping the queue for a H1N1 vaccine
Today my homecity started vaccinating people against H1N1 or swineflue as many like to call it. Bergen received 15000 vaccines and the first area got 4000. Early this morning queues were building up and they worry now that 4000 won’t last long. They are supposed to restrict vaccines to pregnant and people with severe airway diseases but I have a feeling more than these are lining up.
A few minutes ago they had to let pregnant go first in line because people have started to skip the queue – can you imagine that? This is embarrassing..
The personell there now fairs now that 4000 is not enough but they don’t know when the next shipment comes. The health system is a mess, noone seem in control but everyone knows that Norway ordered too many vaccines and theres no left for the poorer countries.
I hope the ones who take the vaccine today will be ok, I fear they are part of an experiment since the vaccine is quite new.
