Protecting At-Risk Populations: Here is a great story...perhaps the best way to better hold off the spread of H1N1 or any other disease. CNN is reporting on a crew of volunteers going out to the streets to vaccinate homeless persons against H1N1. Taking the vaccine to the streets, along with any type of treatments, will almost certainly keep the infection rates down and may prevent spread of the disease.
Lets remember that the homeless population includes many who have issues with addiction or mental illness in addition to co-existing medical conditions. This situation clearly makes the homeless population at greater risk.
