WASHINGTON: The White House says detainees at Guantanamo Bay are not yet receiving vaccinations against the swine flu. Press secretary Robert Gibbs said on Tuesday that protests claiming terrorism suspects at the US naval base in Cuba were receiving vaccines were misplaced. Gibbs says no vaccines are at the naval base and none are on the way. A spokesman for the US jail facility a day earlier said guards and then inmates were scheduled for inoculations. Critics were fast to object, saying US civilians were awaiting vaccines while suspected terrorists were receiving injections. Army Maj James Crabtree said Monday that doses should start arriving this month.
