not everyone has a doctor, many folks use Community Health Centers...it was a "health fair" provided by the employer, something done routinely by many company for things like mammagrams, screening, injections, etc.
having said that, when the shots are in short supply, i've seen millionaires line up outside a grocery store with everyone else to get their flu-shot (last yr)...
i'm w/ u...i'm goin to a doc, but i understand why many can't or don't and why community outreach programs such as this are needed, not just for flu-shots but for many things related to basic health care
if for some reason, you've never experienced, witnessed or understood the need for this...get out and meet your neighbors, not the ones down the street, i'm talking about the ones on the other side of the tracks...people are people
