Yesterday was a diary by DWG that went over the Haitian Cholera outbreak. I commented that the outbreak was predicted back in February and someone asked why a vaccine schedule wasn't set up to prevent the outbreak. The same prediction was made for NOLA post Katrina. No Cholera outbreak occurred in NOLA, but that was because the U.S. has a better infrastructure than Haiti.
I'm sure many people in Haiti have been vaccinated. This would include aid workers, key personnel in the Haitian government and I'm sure wealthy Haitians got it (if they didn't leave altogether)
(yes, I know). There are a dozen of so reasons why mass vaccination of the Haitian population didn't happen.
