Minnesota Flu Hotline Over Capacity

The Minnesota Flu Hotline that I had mentioned earlier is a failure. The state is calling it a “hiccup.” Basically, no one can get through because a lot of people are calling in. The local news is reporting that they have yet to get through themselves or to see anyone get through.

Reports are that the state or its contractor were not expecting the volume of calls they are getting. I wonder why it did not occur to anyone that they would get a lot of calls DURING A PANDEMIC!!!!

Anyway, not to throw gasoline on the fire or anything, but if you ARE sick and you REALLY do have the flu, and you ACTUALLY get through to the hotline (click link above to get the number) then maybe they’ll give you a script over the phone for tamiflu. Or so they say. Isn’t that interesting?
