HUH? NASCAR Cooties?

I'm not believing this...

What gives with House staffers getting immunizations for hepatitis, diphtheria, and influenza before going to NASCAR races? The issue comes to us courtesy Rep. Robin Hayes (R-NC), who wrote to the House Committee on Homeland Security yesterday asking why four of their staffers were immunized before attending a race in his hometown of Concord and in Talledega, Alabama. "I have never heard of immunizations for domestic travel, and as the Representative for Concord, NC, I feel compelled to ask why the heck the committee feels that immunizations are needed to travel to my hometown?"
