Swine flu shots


WASHINGTON: The daughters of US President Barack Obama, Malia and Sasha, have received their swine flu vaccinations, a White House spokeswoman said. The First Daughters were given their A(H1N1) shots last week by the White House physician, Katie McCormick Lelyveld, a spokeswoman for first lady Michelle Obama, said on the White House blog.

Malia, 11, and Sasha, eight, were inoculated against A(H1N1) after the vaccine became available to school-age children across the nation’s capital of Washington and surrounding areas. The girls also have been vaccinated against seasonal flu, the White House said. President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama have not yet received their swine flu vaccinations, but have received their seasonal flu shots.
