Swine Flu Vaccine Delay Manageable, Experts Say
Date:8/20/2009

Having 45 million doses by Oct. 15 will still be useful, they stress

THURSDAY, Aug. 20 (HealthDay News) -- Health experts do not believe that the delay in receiving swine flu vaccine will thwart the U.S. government's strategy to protect Americans against the newly circulating virus.

According to federal health authorities, after mid-October, 20 million more doses of the vaccine will be shipped each week.

In a way, the delay is no surprise, given the unpredictability of influenza in general and the elaborate and fragile requirements of the vaccine production process.

"We know that making a flu vaccine is a committed process. There are many steps in that process and all it takes is for something to be a little bit off on one of the steps and you're going to see delays or shortages," Treanor said.

The main problem right now is that manufacturers are simply not getting the yield of vaccine they had expected.

"The delay is being attributed to slower and wimpier growth of the vaccine substrate used to make the vaccine. The amount vaccine manufacturers are getting o
