Wouldn't it have been nice if the H1N1 vaccine 
had been available for our children before the school year started?

Below is a statement from the Congressional Commission worth thinking about:

 
This is a Call To Action video for the BIPARTISAN Congressional Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism. We've been discussing the H1N1 vaccine issue since the spring when we knew it was a virtual certainty that there would be insufficient supplies this fall.

We are the first Congressional Commission to use social media to reach out to the public. If you send an e-mail to your Senator or Representative, a 22 year-old staffer will make a check mark on a score card. However, if we get the response that we think is possible, it will give some real power to former Senators Bob Graham (D-FL) and Jim Talent (R-MO) to sit down with leaders in Congress and the White House. 

We are not selling anything except an idea. With the capability to make vaccines faster and less expensively, we can save millions of lives worldwide.

We need help with the solution.
