    Ed Smith makes some valid comments concerning the people charged with the task of setting priorities for groups receiving the H1N1 vaccine. It's a fact that no children and very few adults younger than age 60 have existing antibody to the 2009 H1N1 virus, however, about 1/3 of adults older than 60 'may' have antibodies against this virus. It is unknown how much, if any, protection may be afforded against 2009 HiN1 flu by any existing antibody. Was this fact taken into consideration by the people charged with setting the priorities as to what age group gets the vaccine and when they get it ?
