An H1N1 vaccine is scheduled to be available by next week. A firm based in Maryland is responsible for the first batch. MedImmune has been in the flu business for more than two decades. It introduced the seasonal-flu vaccine, FluMist, in 2003.
George Kemble is MedImmune's vice-president of vaccine research and development. He says the firm has put a lot of time and energy into pandemic preparedness. The nasal-spray vaccine is approved for healthy people ages 2 to 49.
