What makes SJP any more important the the Husband of the woman who has cancer (she is vulnerable), or the teachers who are exposed everyday.
Some people are higher risk, and should get the vaccine first, not the ones who have an "in". It is just not right, but that is just me.
I think you are being naďve, lindyloo. I don’t know about nurses, but do you really think that most doctors have not obtained H1N1 for their spouses?
Or do you think conversations similar to following do not take place?
“Hey doc, you are giving H1N1 to my two kids tomorrow. How about slipping my wife one?”
“No, she does not come under any of the priority groups.”
“Well, do you remember you had that plumbing emergency, your bathroom got flooded and I rushed over at night last month?” (or ‘do you remember you had to go to hospital emergency at night last winter, and I came with my snow plough and cleared up your driveway?”)
“Well, let me see what I can do.”
These things go on all the time.
