Today's links

First, the EPA set out new standards that airlines have to test and disinfect water on planes. Ew, you mean they weren't doing this before? Read here for the article, and read here for more from the EPA.

Second, and a biggie. The first doses of H1N1 vaccine are just now becoming available, and there is much excitement over it. According to this article, several states were offering the nasal spray to children, with shots beginning next week. Public health officials are battling myths and opposition to the vaccine, posing public relations troubles for CDC and state health departments.

Here is an article about immunizations and opposition to them.

Finally, a tongue-in-cheek article from the Huffington Post about Big Pharma and H1N1.
