H1N1 Vaccine? Not For Our Friend Norma!

Marilyn mistressmarilyn told me that our friend Norma went to her doctor to get the H1N1 vaccine. She's high risk, because she has no spleen. When she told the nurse that, they were in agreement, reasonably enough.

Excuse me?

She's disposable because of her 'advanced' age???

Her granddaughter (whom she helps care for frequently) has H1N1, and Norma is understandably concerned that she needs the vaccine. But I guess she won't be getting it.
