H1N1 Vaccine: Bankers and Bailout Recipients First

This is the way the world works (in case you just got here). This today at the Huffington Post:

Building on a story that BusinessWeek broke, NBC reports that employees at the New York Stock Exchange, bankers at Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, and employees at the Federal Reserve have all received swine flu vaccine doses to administer to their employees. In particular, NBC reports that Goldman Sachs has received 200 doses of the vaccine — the same amount as Lenox Hill Hospital in New York.

I managed to secure swine flu shots for my children (ages 3 and 5) two weeks ago, but isn’t it interesting that those at greatest risk of the flu (children, young adults, the elderly, and the immune compromised) may find themselves in line for their shots behind these middle-aged and lower risk bank managers and functionaries?

The rich are making sure to get their swine flu shots. 

Are you?
