H1N1 Update and ABC News 10 Sacramento

Posted Nov 30 2009 10:03pm
Streaming live on ABC 10 today with Sharon Ito about questions regarding H1N1 vaccine.

Sharon's summary of today's discussion.

SACRAMENTO, CA - On Monday's Live_Online at 11 a.m., we talked with frequent contributor Dr. Davis Liu, a family physician with Kaiser.

Liu said Kaiser, along with other health providers, are still awaiting additional shipments of the H1N1 vaccine. He said Kaiser closed its flu shot clinics a couple of weeks ago after running out of the vaccine, but he expects the vaccinations to resume shortly. Liu said the vaccine's manufacturers were overly optimistic when initially projecting the distribution of the vaccine.

Liu told viewers he can't understand why some doctors and nurses around the country have refused to get the H1N1 vaccine, especially when they're seeing sick patients and their potential exposure to the virus can infect other people.

Liu told viewers the manufacture of the H1N1 vaccine is similar to the production of other flu vaccines, and he said those methods have proven safe.
