US expects far fewer swine flu shots in October

The U.S. won't have nearly as much swine flu vaccine ready by mid-October as long predicted — 45 million doses instead of the anticipated 120 million, a federal official said Monday.

It's not a shortage but a delay, Health and Human Services spokesman Bill Hall said. More will arrive rapidly after that, with about 20 million more doses being shipped weekly until the government reaches the full 195 million doses ordered, he said.

But the October shortfall, blamed on manufacturing issues, will extend by a month efforts to get people at highest risk vaccinated against the new flu strain. First in line are supposed to be pregnant women, children and health care workers, followed by younger adults with flu-risky conditions such as asthma.

  1. The novel H1N1 flu strain, commonly known as swine flu, circling the globe has prompted people to take flu shots to protect themselves against seasonal flu. Flu shots are going to be in high demand this year, especially since this whole swine flu business began. Once again, the ability of the private market, through charity, has made it's ability to act quicker than government known again, as several companies are offering free flu shots, or a discount on them, to the uninsured and/or unemployed – Walgreens and CVS, the online pharmacy company, will be offering about $3 million worth of free shots. Rite Aid and Wal Mart are following suit. The shots offered will not counter the H1N1 virus. It's good to know someone is willing to offer free flu shots to those who otherwise would need instant cash loans to get one.
