H1-N1 "Swine Flu" vaccine expected

LUBBCOK, TX (KCBD) - It won't happen overnight, but officials with the CDC say they've taken the first steps toward making a vaccine to protect against the H1-N1 virus or "Swine Flu" should we need it in the Fall. 

Vaccine experts say if production starts immediately, the first doses could be available by September, with the full supply ready in November at the earliest.  Researchers are still trying to decide whether to include the new vaccine with the seasonal flu shot or if they should be given as two separate shots.
