Who Is To Blame For The Swine Flu Vaccine Problems?

October 10, 2009

Washington (SmartAboutHealth) - One thing has become perfectly clear over the past few weeks, there is a major problem in the U.S. in regards to getting the H1N1 swine flu vaccine out to the public, but who is to blame?
The swine flu continues to run rampant all across the U.S. and the delivery of the H1N1 swine flu vaccine is failing to keep up.
Week after week the deliveries of the vaccine fall behind in regards to when they were originally planned to be delivered, leaving Americans greatly concerned.
The original plan was to have over 35 million doses of the swine flu vaccine to be ready by the middle of October, the only problem is that they have not even been able to deliver half of what they promised.
Federal officials have clearly underestimated what it would take and how long it would take to get these vaccines out to the public.
The early projections that came out of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as other departments were far and above what even the biggest optimist could have come up with.
The CDC has since stated that they now expect to have 50 million doses of the swine flu by the middle of November, which if they reach, would be a big improvement.
With roughly 5,000 Americans being hospitalized due to the H1N1 swine flu, the vaccine cannot get out soon enough.
