So the people themselves know about their secret before Wednesday? does anyone else?
The secret of how many people is going to be revealed? more than 2? 10? 100? 1000?
Is there more than a "local" link? Do they share something else? like profession? age? leisure activities?
Will the secret be revealed via the medias?

Is there something special about Wednesday, December 9 (that's the one you mean, right?)? If so, is the significance about December 9 in general? Or about December 9, 2009? Or could you say that this type of secret is revealed daily? weekly? Monthly? for a different group of people.

Also, the roughly 100 people...is that the approximate number of people in one local area? Or the approximate number of people worldwide?

Is the "inner secret" something unpleasant? embarrassing? pleasant? happy?
Do the people want it to be revealed? like it to be revealed?
Do all of these 100 local people know the "inner secret" themselves?

Is the "inner secret" something unpleasant? it can be embarrassing? possibly pleasant? no happy? no
Do the people want it to be revealed? some will have already revealed it to people they know like it to be revealed? some may wish to keep quiet about it
Do all of these 100 local people know the "inner secret" themselves? not of each other, only themselves, and depending on their attitude towards it may not even consider it a secret as such

Tommyp

Are people getting vaccine? yes but only those in "risk groups"? yes relevant? totally

************* SPOILER ***************

On Wednesday those in the 'at risk' groups are being offered the swine flu vaccine. The regular flu jabs have already taken place and although at risk people were included it was less obvious as to who was who. Most people were of a certain age and there were only one or two people who were obviously too young to be offered the flu jab purely due to age.

This time it will be clear as to who is 'at risk' in the local area - everybody who turns up. Now, for instance, there might be speculation as to why Mrs J is there but not Mr J


Thank you one and all

High risk groups for swine flu relevant? The order in which people will get vaccine? Who will not get it because of allergy/similar? Allergies relevant?

Here in Sweden I think around 45% have gotten the Swine Flu vaccine now. The risk groups have sofar been "Politicians deciding which are in the risk groups", "Hockey players whose club doctor can lend vaccine from other risk groups", "Opera singers", "Reality show attendees" and "Theater visitors"...

Haha, that's what I get for leaving my computer before actually posting. Yes there's been a lot of silliness surrounding the vaccine here in Sweden. We were offered vaccine through our employer, but turns out we'd all had gotten it sooner if we had used the free vaccination program provided by the county instead.
