Swine flu vaccine deliveries run late in Massachusetts
Swine flu vaccine shipments to Massachusetts are running three weeks behind schedule, forcing the state to direct local health departments to cancel vaccine clinics scheduled for November. Shortages of the vaccine against seasonal flu strains are also being reported, as unusually high demand is outpacing the supply. The problems seen in Massachusetts reflect a nationwide shortage, as production facilities have been unable to churn out adequate amounts of either vaccine.
