Flu shots for prisoners
Felons of the Missouri prison system are much more likely to receive a flu shot than any other American that might be at high risk.
According to an Associated Press article by Connie Farrow, the Missouri prison systems medical services contractor, Correctional Medical Services, received 8780 of the 9460 doses it requested. That’s around 93% of the requested amount. Why does the prison system get 93% when the rest of the country only gets around 50% coverage.
My question is, why are the scum of this country being treated better than the rest of us? They say in the article that this will prevent an outbreak of flu in the prison system. Just how concerned should I be about an outbreak in the prison system? I think I'm more concerned about an outbreak in the school system!
