Summary

Caption from Torch: "SI employees who appeared at MHT's temporary health facilities November 5 were 'shot' by an injection gun filled with swine flu vaccine. According to SI Head Nurse Anita McMonigle, 954 staff members received influenza inoculations with only minimal side effects reported to the health units. Most received just the swine flu vaccine, but elderly and high risk persons were administered the bivalent form combining swine flu and Victoria flu vaccines. Personnel from the District of Columbia Department of Human Resources, who administered the vaccine, will not return to the Smithsonian said Mrs. McMonigle, but flu inoculations are still being given in the area. Check local newspapers for the listings of locations in the District, Maryland, and Virginia."
