Being too careful?

In the wake of the first confirmed death of an American citizen due to swine flu, the Post is reporting that the Obama Administration is considering an “unprecidented fall vaccination campaign,” which would add two new shots targeting swine flu to the existing regime (currently just one shot).   The program would cost billions of dollars.

Seems Obama is taking a page out of Margeret Chan’s book:  “I’m not predicting the pandemic will blow up, but if I miss it and we don’t prepare, I fail. I’d rather over-prepare than not prepare.”
