Less H1N1 Vaccine than expected


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reporting that the production of H1N1 vaccine is slower than expected.

According to CNN,  the CDC hoped 40 million doses of H1N1 would be available by the end of October. Because of manufacturing delays they think it will be 10-12 million doses less.

As of Wednesday 11.4 million doses of flu vaccine were available to be ordered and 8 million doses had been ordered by State Department Health Departments the CDC said.
