Flu Vaccines and Congress

Despite a national shortage of flu vaccines, some members of Congress are getting their flu shots.

The capitol physician advised the lawmakers to get their shots because many of them are over the age of 65 and fall into the "at risk" category for the flu.

But some of them don't fall into that category including Senate Majority Leader, Bill First, who has already received his vaccine.

First's office says he got the shot before the guidelines were issued.
