Today's Globe: Carney meeting, city council and SEIU, nasal flu vaccine, CDC editing

Carney%20150.bmpBoston City Council President Maureen Feeney is expected to meet today with Senate President Therese Murray, and tomorrow will convene a larger group of elected officials to explore ways to shore up the Archdiocese of Boston's Caritas Carney Hospital (left), the 144-year-old Dorchester institution facing enormous financial pressures.

In a show of support for an impending campaign by the Service Employees International Union to organize workers at the Boston's teaching hospitals, city councillors voted 10-0 in favor of a resolution calling for hospital executives to sign "free and fair election agreements."

Children as young as 2 can be given a nasal spray flu vaccine, a federal advisory panel said yesterday.

The chairman of the Senate committee addressing climate change criticized the White House yesterday for editing testimony from a government specialist about the health effects of global warming.
