Feeble and elderly should get flu shots


Do you know this policy of Alaska?  Please consider our financial crisis.

If you are 29 years old or younger (all the way down to 6 months of age) you can receive a flu shot from the Public Health nurse at some minimal expense. In the infinite wisdom of our legislature this was determined to be the highest area of priority? What happened to the feeble, susceptible and elderly? Politicians claim we are running out of money. The 2015 accounting for the Alaska Permanent Fund is $54.7 billion. Don’t get a flu shot. It’s OK with me. But please learn to add and subtract at the voting booth.
