    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Thursday, October 21, 2004

    Who got shot? 

    Judging from the news of the last 24 hours or so, we're half expecting the political TV ads to start telling us not to vote for Candidates X and Y because they - of all things! - got flu shots.

    We agree that shots should be given first to the highest-risk groups, especially since some of us belong to a high-risk group and haven't been shot yet. But perhaps things are getting out of control. Consider the headlines:

    Lawmakers getting flu shot sparks debate

    Frist defends flu shots for Congress

    Most Minnesota lawmakers forego flu shots

    Some Texas lawmakers received flu shots

    Flu debate: Should healthy lawmakers get a shot amid a shortage?

    Some Ohio lawmakers have been vaccinated, others refusing shots

    Daschle, Herseth skip flu shot; Johnson gets one

    Georgia senators say they got flu shots before shortage known

    Many Michigan members of Congress got flu shots despite shortage

    We've also heard that Bush, Kerry and Edwards did not get injections but that Cheney, who is over 65 and has a heart condition, was innoculated.
