Dy’er Sez: Waitamiute…I thought that it was being widely reported that there were huge lines and not enough vaccine to go around? If so, how can there be all that much (if any) left-over which will have to be discarded?
Considering that billions upon billions of our tax-dollars have already been spent on a vast amount of vaccine, that means that the companies who are making it are going to get paid either way.

UPDATE 3-U.S. may end up discarding unused H1N1 vaccine
By Maggie Fox, Health and Science Editor
WASHINGTON, Oct 27 (Reuters) – The U.S. government may end up throwing away unused doses of swine flu vaccine if people cannot get it soon enough, the director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Tuesday.
Members of Congress questioned whether federal officials were too rosy in their estimates of how much vaccine would be available and when, and companies said they were still struggling to produce immunizations against H1N1.
