President Obama made another pitch for his health care overhaul1 plan today, this time to a group of doctors. Speaking to physicians in the White House Rose Garden, the president said that no one has more credibility with the American people on this issue than you do. And he urged those doctors who support healthcare initiative to make their voices heard.

 "If you want to speak out strongly on behalf of the things you care about and what you see each and every day as you are serving patients all across the country, I'm confident we're going to get our health reform passed this year."

 The event gave the White House an additional chance to frame the debate over healthcare as the Senate Committee prepares to approve a health care bill this week. One hundred and fifty supportive doctors representing all 50 states were arrayed just outside the West Wing, all of whom were wearing their white medical coats.

Programs for the general public are expected to start as more vaccines5 become available in the next several weeks. The injectable form of the vaccine with no opt6 for age limit is expected to be available later this week. Joanne Silberner, NPR News.
