So far Colorado has only gotten half of what was promised, which was 30 million. They got about 15 million so far. We've had clinics close down and they don't have enough to pass around to the general public. Anybody else experiencing this?
I have read that technical failures on production lines is the cause of the vaccine shortage. According to the Health and Human Services Secretary, there will be enough vaccines available for the public by the middle of November.
I am due December 2nd and I can't find the shot form of the vaccine anywhere in Texas. My OB and my family doctor haven't received it yet. I actually want the vaccine and it is very frustrating not being able to locate it. Especially when they are having vaccine clinics in other states. I hope they get it soon.
Availability in Alberta Canada started today. Currently only the regular vaccine is available, the thermisol free will not be available for app. 2 weeks. I was told (CDC recommendation) to go ahead and get the one that is currently available as I am over 20 weeks. Seeings how the thermisol free is not available for 2 weeks, then it takes another 2 weeks after receiving the vaccine for it to really kick in, I am going to go ahead right away. I am more scared of getting H1N1, so I am prepared to take that minor risk. I also had my seasonal flu vaccine today. I agree with Kelly and I can't get mine fast enough.
adgal I am glad you can get it now. From what I understand the thermosil it contains is very very low and your right it is better to go ahead and get it ASAP! I am 35 weeks and still can't find it in Texas. I am extremely aggrevated. I am one of these pregnant women who are freaking out about catching the swine flu. Ugh...it is so frustrating. I would really like to have some immunity to the virus, especially before I go into the hospital to deliver my baby girl. I actually have heard of quite a few more pregnant women dying from the H1N1. This is so scary!
