HHS chief: Swine flu vaccines ready soon

Washington Post, September 15, 2009
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said upwards of 50 million doses of a new vaccine for the H1N1 virus will be available in mid-October, with millions more doses quickly following. The initial vaccines will go to what Sebelius calls priority populations: including caregivers, young people ages 6 to 24, hospital workers, pregnant women, and some seniors. They add up to about 160 million people, or nearly half the U.S. population.
