Harvard Vaccination Guru Speaks Swine

Still confused about whether the swine flu vaccine is safe?

Don't know whether you should be vaccinated?

Here's an interview published in today's Boston Globe with Dr. Marie McCormick, professor of maternal and child health at the Harvard School of Public Health and the lead advisor on an expert committee that reviewed data related to the safety of the swine flu vaccine.

In response to whether she will get vaccinated, McCormick said, "When it becomes available, I will certainly have it. I do see patients in the fall, and all my patients are younger than 3, so it’s really both for their protection and mine."
