Swine Flu Vaccination Meeting at World Health Organization

The AP reports that that vaccine makers and others met at the World Health Organization to discuss the current situation and production of vaccinations that will prevent the swine flu. There are already vaccinations being made, but there are other questions that have to be answered about the vaccine: How much should be produced? How will it be distributed? Who should get it?

Although many questions are still left unanswered, and reasons officials believe that they should continue on with the development of the vaccine as stated by David Fedson, a vaccines expert and former professor of medicine at the University of Virginia. "It's a foregone conclusion, if we don't invest in an H1N1 (swine flu) vaccine, then possibly we could have a reappearance of this virus in a mild, moderate, or catastrophic form and we would have absolutely nothing."
