No U.S. decision on H1N1 vaccine orders, CDC director says

WASHINGTON — The United States has not made a decision on whether to cancel or sell any of its orders for the H1N1 vaccine, unlike some countries in Europe, a federal health official said Jan. 7.

Dr. Anne Schuchat, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said demand remains steady and the government's focus is on having as many people vaccinated as possible.

"Right now we are at a point where we have ample supply. We're really encouraging people to get vaccinated. So we haven't made decisions here in the U.S. about giving back vaccines," she told a media briefing.
