Alleged H1N1 vaccine distribution unfairness

I don’t understand why people are so bent out of shape about the notion that rich folks might get priority access to the H1N1 vaccine*.  Don’t they realize that this is a big part of the reason that the United States has the world’s best healthcare system?
* – A concern, by the way, that seems largely blown out of proportion.  Sure, large NYC employers like Wall Street banks are getting doses of the vaccine, but at least in theory they’re supposed to be giving it to the portion of their employee populations that are in high-risk groups for medical reasons.  Like owning a yacht.
