High Risk Flames

November 3, 2009

Uh oh.


The Calgary Flames and their families received H1N1 vaccines at a private clinic.  You should hear Jerome Iginla trying to justify the team getting the vaccine when public clinics were running out.  “We do come into contact with a lot of kids.  We come into contact with a lot of people and autographs and things like that spread very quickly among us … I don’t know if that’s high enough risk or whatever.”  The team president tried to spin it that the players didn’t ask for special treatment.  They were just following medical advice.


I don’t blame them for accepting the vaccine when offered but this certainly won’t go over well with the public.  At least they aren’t in Saskatchewan.  Sask Health doesn’t look favorably upon the “biggest and richest” getting the vaccine first.


Does anyone know if the Riders have been vaccinated?

    I’m going to guess no. Something like that would not stay a secret in this province.

    Good point.

    Which do you think would make Saskatchewanians more upset — the Riders getting immunized before the general public or the Riders losing a playoff game because too many players got swine flu?
