Some of the first swine flu vaccines to arrive in New York City were quickly administered to health care workers and kids at the Children’s Hospital Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx yesterday.

Health care workers, pregnant women, and children are on the priority list. The first weekly shipment of H1N1 nasal mist vaccines began arriving Monday. The City expects receiving limited batches of 68,000 vaccines per week through October. Next month, more than 1 million doses are anticipated to be followed by another 2 million in December.

According to a Harvard University poll, only half of U.S. adults plan to get vaccinated.

Schools are to begin handing out swine flu inoculation consent forms for students to give their parents within a few weeks. Students should start receiving vaccinations by the end of the month.

Maria Milosheva

Maria was born, raised and currently lives in Sofia, Bulgaria, EU. She is a journalist by profession and practices psychological consultation for the past few years. Maria worked as a reporter/journalist for a number of newspapers and radio stations. She served as a chief-editor of the National Library's monthly magazine Librarian for a number of years. Maria started drawing in 1991, urged by a strong inner need to recreate the reality beyond the usual – the world of forms and details… She has taken part in various exhibitions and her work is in a number of private collections around the world. It can be seen at MarmiArt.com. Maria's drawings are created using mixed techniques – aquarelle, tempera, ink, pencils, etc. They are unique and have no names. Their eventual owners would give them names, effectively becoming a part of the process of creating them. Every one can charge their own drawing with one's own energy and identify it with one's self. The drawings will repay generously, predisposing for calm moments of reflection and meditation.
