Only 1 in 4 Americans Got H1N1 Vaccine
Date:4/1/2010

al flu vaccine [which will include the H1N1 flu strain] next fall, it's likely that [the H1N1] vaccine can be put aside, but we don't know exactly when the seasonal flu vaccine is coming and in what quantity. But we would hate to see more disease in August and have thrown away the H1N1 vaccine," she added.

Schuchat said she did not expect all the doses available to be used, but health officials had "made a conscious decision to have more than enough vaccine, rather than less than enough vaccine."

On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that not even half of 229 million vaccine doses purchased by the U.S. government have been used, meaning almost 72 million doses could be discarded. The H1N1 vaccine program has cost the government $1.6 billion, the newspaper reported.
