Amazing how as things progress…they have enough for everyone…instead of two shots it will just be one…the dose will be half what they expected…vaccine will be ready sooner than expected…folks can be vaccinated for seasonal/H1N1 flu at the same time.
What folks seem to not realize is that more people will die of the seasonal flu than will of H1N1 and that some of the deaths that would normally be attributed to seasonal flu will be attributed to the H1N1.
These words seem ominous to me.
HHS Secry KATHLEEN SEBELIUS:
We will have enough vaccine available for everyone.
The plan is to begin the large-scale vaccination program in mid-October in as many as 90,000 sites.
Problem being – not everyone needs to get vaccinated.
CSC’s DR THOMAS FRIEDEN:
Literally, hundreds of millions of people have gotten the flu vaccine, and certainly my kids (ages 5 and 15) will be getting the H1N1 vaccine when it becomes available for everybody.
