Duke Gets Flu Shot
Duke Aiona today issued the following statement in response to an email sent recently by supporters of his opponent's campaign.
"My comments about flu vaccine have been taken out of context and misconstrued by members of the media as well as supporters of my opponent's campaign.
“I've talked with many health care professionals and reviewed the benefits and risks of flu vaccinations. I just got my flu shot.
"Flu vaccinations are an important part of a healthy lifestyle – especially for our keiki and kupuna.
“I don't have any philosophical opposition to vaccinations, and as a child, I received all of my vaccinations.
"I have always been supportive of our voluntary Stop Flu at School flu vaccination program.
"It's important for our citizens to have accurate information, and make a personal choice. We all do."
