    Call me a curmudgeon, but I don’t want the state serving as the marketing arm for Big Pharma.

    Knox County Schools have been selected as the only district in the country for a flu project, health officials say has the potential to change vaccination policy nationwide.

    You’ll recall Knox County offered free FluMist vaccinations to every public school student last year.

    And because of its high vaccination rates last year, FluMist manufacturer MedImmune has selected Knox County as a national model this year.

    …New this year, private school and home school students will also be eligible to receive FluMist free of charge.

    Parents of home school students will receive information by mail.

    I’d sure like to get free FluMist for my son! Last year he couldn’t get the vaccine because the college couldn’t get enough for all the students who wanted it. Our doctor couldn’t order enough for more than the highest-risk patients. I got a shot at work. We couldn’t find FluMist anywhere!

    If parents want to get this for their kids, why shouldn’t it be offered?

    Hey — it’s not mandatory!
