Swine flu vaccination delivery falls behind

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - Alabama's state health officer says the delivery of the swine flu vaccine to the state is far behind schedule.

Don Williamson says the slow arrival of the vaccine is throwing off health officials' plans for mass vaccination clinics at schools and it is complicating delivery to doctors' offices too.

Williamson says Alabama expected to have at least 570-thousand shots of the vaccine by the end of October.

He says the state will be lucky to get 300-thousand shots by then.
