300 Free Cervical Cancer Vaccines

Isn't it amazing how the decent and unselfish actions of a few people can make you realise how messed up and misdirected this country is?

A consortium of four Dublin-based businessmen have donated enough money to purchase 300 doses of the cervical cancer vaccine and several G.P.s have agreed to administer the vaccine (and its subsequent doses) free of charge next Saturday.

It's hardly a replacement for the axed E10 million cervical cancer scheme, but hopefully the fact that people think that this is important will eventually register with the government. It may be a political stunt (one of the doctors is Dr. James Reilly, the Fine Gael spokesman for Health), but it's one that I can live with.
