Swine flu shots delayed for most

Boston Globe, October 1, 2009
Vaccine against swine flu will not be widely available in Massachusetts until mid-November, the state's public health commissioner warned, even as specialists fear that cases of the viral disease will increase markedly in coming weeks. The Department of Public Health expects the first vaccine doses to arrive in the state no later than Oct. 12, but that initial shipment is expected to include only about half as many doses as originally anticipated.
