President Obama’s two daughters, Malia and Sasha, have received their swine flu vaccinations.
The Obama’s did not prefer any favoritism.
Katie McCormick Lelyveld, the spokeswoman for first lady Michelle Obama, said the president and Mrs. Obama would wait to get their shots until after people in priority groups, such as children, young adults and pregnant women, have been vaccinated against the H1N1 strain.
President Obama set an example for the nation to encourage citizens to get their vaccinations.
U.S. health officials said Tuesday that more than 22 million doses of swine flu vaccine are now available and that most people should soon begin to find it easier to get a shot.
The first family is getting vaccinated against the swine flu and other families have the opportunity to be vaccinated as well. Source: The Associated Press
