"Free Vaccine for You?"
It was announced August 16th that the Swine Flu vaccine will be free to the public as soon as the government makes them available to the public.
When the proper dosage of the vaccine arrive those who are at high risk will receive priority of getting the vaccination. The highest at risk patients are women who are pregnant, children aged six months to four years old, children with chronic medical conditions, individuals who care for children, and health care professionals who have constant direct contact with sick people.
The Centers for Disease Control expect there to be an available vaccine on the market in mid-fall 2009. The Government also says there will be reimbursement funds available to doctors who provide free vaccination to its patients.
