At least 111 million doses of swine flu vaccine now available, CDC says

At least 111 million doses of vaccine against pandemic H1N1 influenza are now available and least 60 million people have already been immunized, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "The vaccine supply is getting better and better, and surveys are showing that the initial doses were relatively quickly taken up and going to the people they were targeted for," Dr. Anne Schuchat, director of the CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said in a morning news conference. The vaccine "is becoming available in more and more places and at more and more times," she said.

The CDC did a telephone survey during the week of Dec. 6 to 12, contacting families with 1,358 adults and 3,243 children. The survey found that, overall, about 40 million people had been vaccinated by that time. About 40% of the vaccine doses went to children, with the coverage twice as high in children as in adults. "That is really good news," Schuchat said, both because children are hit particularly hit by swine flu and because they are spreaders of the virus. With seasonal flu, there is normally a higher vaccination rate among adults.
