Poll: Drugmakers most at fault for swine flu vaccine shortage

USA Today, November 10, 2009
Americans who are frustrated with shortages of swine flu vaccine place slightly more blame on drug companies than the federal government, a USA Today/Gallup Poll. With swine flu widespread in 48 states and pediatric deaths mounting, only 5% of respondents have received the vaccine since it became available in October, the poll shows. Fifty-eight percent place a great deal or moderate amount of the blame for the lack of vaccine on the federal government, the poll shows, and 62% blame drug companies.
