H1N1 (Influenza A) Vaccine Ready by Next Week and around 7 Million Doses

H1N1 Vaccine


This is a good news that the H1N1 (Influenza A or Swine Flu) vaccine will be ready by next week and few H1N1 vaccine makers already start to ship the H1N1 vaccine (around 7 million doses) to various distribution centers.

As this is the first batch of H1N1 vaccine and only around 7 million doses, so mostly it will be provided to H1N1 high risk group people first.

    • Senior citizen age from 65 years and older (more than 60 years old need to take note)
    • Children below age 5 years (below 10 years old need to take note)
    • People on long-term aspirin therapy
    • Pregnant women
    • People with asthma, organ failure, diabetes mellitus, and other disease
    • People leave near by or in the nursing home or other chronic care facilities
    • People work in crowded areas like shopping centers, airports, governments service centers, tourists areas, restaurants, hotels, etc

National Institutes of Health mentioned that this H1N1 vaccine so far didn’t have any serious side effects and most of the testers have been immunized with good results.

Although a lot of people still worry about the side effects if take the H1N1 vaccine, and most of the feedback is wait and see the effect from other people first then only decide to take the H1N1 vaccine. But, there are certain group of people really want to take the H1N1 vaccine first, as this is the best precaution and even some of the rich people are willing to pay for it to be the first batch of people to get the H1N1 vaccine.

If you need to know where to get the H1N1 vaccine, then you can check with your government hospital, or local public health department. So far they didn’t announce the location or distribution center yet, and they plan to publish this information on once is it available.

I think you better take the H1N1 vaccine even you are not fall in the H1N1 high risk group, as you may not know when you will be get infected by H1N1 virus, and once you have been infected then it will spread to your family and friends. You need to take care yourself first, then only can take care your children or senior citizens. Try to get H1N1 vaccine as early as you can! :)
