Obamas Get Swine Flu Shots

The Obama girls already received their shots. Now, the Obamas get theirs:
President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have received their swine flu shots.

Obama said Monday that he and his wife "just got the shots." A White House official later said Obama was vaccinated at the White House on Sunday and that Mrs. Obama was vaccinated a few days before her husband.

The president also encouraged everyone to get vaccinated against the H1N1 strain of flu now that the vaccine is available to the general public. The vaccines had been restricted to high-risk groups such as children.

Obama said the vaccine is safe. MSNBC
