WHO: H1N1 Vaccine Production Falling Short

"WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl said the production will be "substantially less" than the goal of 94 million doses a week, because some manufacturers are still working on vaccines for seasonal flu."

"The WHO also announced Friday that deaths from the H1N1 influenza virus have reached 3,486."

"The United States has on order 195 million doses of the swine flu vaccine, which is due to start arriving early next month."

"Vaccine makers GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi-Pasteur have also pledged 120 million doses to the WHO."
