Schumer, Gillibrand ask for better communication on H1N1 vaccine

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand are asking the CDC to increase communication with local authorities regarding the swine flu vaccine.

Both senators say they've received calls from parents concerned about the availability of the vaccine for both them and their children.

The makers of the swine flu vaccine have given a bleak assessment of their ability to produce enough shots.

Currently, more than 16 million doses of the vaccine have been made available – but that's millions short of what's actually needed.

According to the Health and Human Services Department, vaccines are being delivered as soon as they are produced. The department says there will eventually be enough to go around.
