Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Tiny defence of the WRHA
I can’t argue with a single word Policy Frog says about the confused way the WRHA has communicated and delivered its H1N1 vaccination program.
But, I will note that it could have been way, way worse. We didn’t secretly vaccinate the Moose or the Bombers like they did with the Calgary Flames. As far as I know, our auditor general is not launching an investigation of the program like the Alberta AG might. We didn’t have to call in the cops or security guards to keep order at our clinics like they did at several sites in the greater Toronto area last week.
And, according to this very interesting chart in the Globe today, the province has actually doled out more vaccine than most provinces.
