Yeah! But I read in an article in the Washington Post that Safeway is still selling it! GRRRRR! HOW did this stuff pass the FDA? Does FDA stand for Flipping Dumb @sses? <span style="font-size:xx-small;">sorry for the profanity</span> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/splat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="splat">

"MedImmune spokeswoman Jamie Lacey said 37 states allow their pharmacists to administer flu vaccines, 34 of which allow FluMist. She said big stores that say they will carry it include food retailers Safeway Inc. (NYSE:SWY - news) and Albertson's Inc. (NYSE:ABS - news)<br><br><br>
The company said it has shipped the vaccine to 14,000 outlets throughout the United States, including other retail pharmacies, physicians offices, hospitals and employers."<br><br>
Again I'm glad I don't shop at the big supermarkets...I can't believe they would even consider administering this around FOOD!!! How many of these supermarket pharmacy's are near the produce dept. All those live virus's just sitting there on some unsuspecting shoppers lettuce?
