Government takes care of all the poor's needs. We can't expect them to switch from antenna to digital TV without help. We can't actually expect them to provide a photo ID when they vote (even if we pay for the ID) and we can't expect them to come to us to get a free vaccine. Too much effort involved.

""even though vaccine was free""

If the vaccine was free... Then how was it obtained....

Oh... That's right... It was not free... It was paid for by taxpayer dollars....

And so... The people who paid for this vaccine, got a little more than the people who did not pay for this vaccine...

Amazing. Vaccine paid for with tax payer money isn't free but an ID paid for with tax payer money is free. What does one need to think like a right winger? A lobotomy?

Talk about a misleading headline -- Wealthier areas didn't get "more H1N1 vaccine than poor", they were just smart enough to go get the vaccine that was available! The headline makes it seem like more was distributed to wealthy areas than poor areas. Good grief!

you can go to the DR and get a shot anytime, but how many free clinics can you go to anytime and get a free shot? Maybe the hours a clinic is open or the location makes a difference???

This is balderdash. The vaccine was not free unless you are on the public dole.

I don't see this as all that much of a mystery. If you don't have health care insurance, a trip to the doctor for a free vaccine is still going to cost you. And if you're working two jobs to keep your head above water, when does one have to time to go to a clinic? Transportation can also be a factor if one depends on the bus to get around.

Headline seems more than a little bit misleading.

Seems logical to me. You need to keep the people who support the others healthy. Otherwise, how are all those people going to get the revenue from those who work?
