H1N1/Swine Flu Vaccine Approved Amid New Dire Predictions
This is my site Written by Alex on September 16, 2009 – 10:53 am   

A vaccine against the H1N1 viral strain – or swine flu – was approved yesterday by the FDA after a lightening round of clinical trials that are still, in fact, continuing to be conducted on some populations, including children and pregnant women. In the shadow of this good news however comes news that the vaccine might arrive too late to address the peak of the expected flu season, which is expected to wash ashore like a hurricane within the next month to six weeks. (See story here.) What this all means in the short team is … ummm, hmmm. Well, what this all means in the long term for clinical trials development and government assistance in crash research and private enterprise’s ability to facilitate the development of that research and distribution of what it yields is …. hmmm, well, huh.

It’s going to be an interesting October.
