Swine Flu-Vaccine

ATLANTA (AP) - U.S. health officials say the first swine flu vaccine should be in some doctors' offices as early as Monday, Oct. 5.

The first batches of vaccine will protect 6 million to 7 million people. Over time, the government expects to have a total of 250 million doses of the new vaccine. Ten percent of that will go to other countries.

Officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday the U.S. vaccine shipments will go directly to doctors, clinics and other providers designated by each state.
