Some Canadian Flu Shot Alternatives

Earlier this month, I wrote about the impact of the tort system on flu vaccine availability in the United States.  Interestingly, travel companies are now bundling flu vaccination with vacation opportunities in Canada.  Fodor’s has an interesting story about the “Flu-Shot Ferry”, a round trip between Seattle and British Columbia selling for $105 with the flu shot included.  The same story also links to an interesting Boston Globe article entitled “Business brisk as Americans stream to Canada for flu shots” which talks about the Flu-Shot Ferry as well as other flu vaccination/vacation opportunities available throughout Canada, such as a weekend plane trip from New York to Montreal.
