Subject: A QUESTION for the esteemed list serve

Recently the State of Connecticut has moved to take over all vaccine
distribution within the state. A member of my Pediatric list serve
complained that this is nationalization of vaccine distribution.

I pointed out that since the State of Connecticut is not a nation this is
not nationalization. He replied that any government takeover is
nationalization. What would the esteemed members of this list serve call a
state takeover of a hitherto private function.
