    My doctor’s office is unable to get thimerosal-free flu shots and so my only choice is to go to the health department, which then my insurance company won’t pay for my flu shot because I could get it from my doctor. It’s one giant circle here…

    Melissa, that’s an outrage. I am baffled about why we do not offer free flu shots as other countries do. Keeping people healthy so they don’t infect others is the smartest public health policy. Always money for a bomb or two, but never for public health.
