LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – It may be amusing to some, but the CDC isn't laughing now that all those leftover swine flu vaccines are going to be trashed and burned. 

The government ordered 200 million doses and pleaded with the public to get protected. As the swine flu epidemic waned, people stopped rolling up their sleeves and now, the CDC says 40 million doses of the H1N1 vaccine are going to the incinerator. Apparently, they've expired and cannot be saved as some had hoped.
