Too Big To Ail

Raise your hand if you’re surprised…

While thousands of at-risk Americans wait, some big Wall Street banks have already secured the hard-to-find H1N1 vaccine for their employees.

Building on a story that BusinessWeek broke, NBC reports that employees at the New York Stock Exchange, bankers at Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, and employees at the Federal Reserve have all received swine flu vaccine doses to administer to their employees.

In particular, NBC reports that Goldman Sachs has received 200 doses of the vaccine — the same amount as Lenox Hill Hospital in New York. Wall Street banks, like many other companies, put in requests for the vaccine but seem to have had something of a leg up on securing doses.

Well, it’s already a well-established fact that our economy cannot survive if Wall Street isn’t fiscally healthy, so it only stands to reason that we can’t afford for these terribly indispensable financial geniuses to be physically unhealthy either.  Plus they’re probably more susceptible to swine flu than most people.  (And God forbid there should ever be vampire squid flu.)
