Who’s NOT jumping the vaccination queue

At least one chief medical officer is following the rules


Among all the stories of flu-shot queue-jumping by, among others, NHL hockey players and the families of health-care professionals, here’s a story about a surprising reluctance to move to the front of the line. Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health, hasnt had the shot yet. And he says key people in his sort of job don’t deserve early immunization. “Not yet, were not in the risk groups,” Strang told the Halifax Chronicle. “We have a vaccine shortage,” he explained. “That’s an indication of how seriously we take the principle of those at risk of severe disease go first.”
