Flu Shot Shortage
Every year, people are encouraged to get the flu shots. Most healthcareworkers are required to get them. However,
some years there is a scarcity of the flu vaccine. Here is an excerpt from an article in "The Morning Call", an online
newsletter:

                    "Bill, who is 60 and in excellent health, reported going to his doctor that day for a routine visit and
                    asking for a flu shot. The doctor, who is a golfing partner of Bill's as well as the family's physician,
                    responded by saying he had only a limited number of doses and had been given guidelines to use
                    his supply, first for people 65 and older who were in weak health. He also indicated, base on their
                    friendship, that he would be willing to give Bill the vaccine that day, citing the fact that Bill was going
                    out of the country for a month. Bill was glad to have the shot but, by dinner time, was having a
                    reaction, not to the vaccine, but to the choice he had made."

In an original face-visible video post, address the following questions:
• Should Bill have taken the medicine?
• What about his mother, 88, also a patient of the same physician? What if there wasn't enough for her?
• What about other friends, older than 65, recovering from heart surgery or cancer?
• Was his action unethical? What about the doctor? Who was responsible? Was any harm done?
• What ethical principles should be considered in this scenario?
   
Responses:
Initial face-visible video post is due by Day 3 (2-4 minutes in length). Remember to support your initial response with
at least one additional outside resource (other than your textbook and the videos). Be sure to cite this aloud during the
video, as not doing so is plagiarism. As an example, in a video you would say something like: "According to (name the
textbook and/or authors)......(then say the quote)" to back up the point you are making. Use the Kaltura multimedia
recording software to record your video. Use the tutorials below with assistance with the software. After successfully
creating your video, post it to the Discussion Board by selecting Mashups>Kaltura Media from the tool bar and selecting
your video.
Two textual peer responses are due by Day 7 (minimum of 250-300 words each in length). At least one of your response 
posts should contain at least one additional outside resource (other than your textbook and the videos). APA  format with 
one secondary reference and in-text citation for at least one of the peer responses.
