    I know i 'm late, but I was unable to put this thread earlier because my computer was out.

    I heard that the USA have big problem with the grippe vaccine.
    A laboratory of the main US society of medical products had some problem, and had to destroy the vaccines. this factory was in UK.

    Is the situation better, now ? I think it show a problem in the US healthcare system.

    Solution of Bush : the young people, about 20-30 years old, in a good health, should be not vaccinated, so there will be more vaccines for the old.

    I also know that the Pasteur Institute ,a french laboratory, send to USA 50,000,000 or 100,000,000 of grippe vaccine doses...
    And I never heard any word, any sentence to thank France....

    It's actually called the "flu", stands for influenza.

    The US pays for the vaccines, that usually doesn't require a public Thank You.

    Do you think France would give anything to anyone for free?

    That could be because we ordered and paid for that vaccine as we usually do, that was only half of what we usually order the rest comes from the UK company that was closed down by their government.

    Any vaccine that is outside our usual process has to be approved by the FDA, it may be that we can get more vaccine but there is no reason to thank somebody for doing business with them. We thanked you with our dollars and by helping your economy by doing business with companies in your country, helping to employ your population.

    Um, in French the word for flu is grippe, (also in Russian and many other languages) give the guy some breaks he is doing well in English.

    Remember all the kids in France are geniuses, amazingly they can all speak French!

    Too funny!

    In the US grippe usually means gastrointestinal upset.
