As individuals are being turned away for H1N1 vaccinations nationwide, a local vaccine producer says it is getting its vaccine to the market on time.

Medimmune is one of five swine flu vaccine producers nationwide. The company, based in Gaithersburg, Maryland, makes the nasal mist version of the vaccine. Spokesman Tor Constantino says the company is fulfilling its contract with the Department of Health and Human Services for vaccine delivery. Constantino says Medimmune's deadline for delivery is early 2010.

He says the company is making and delivering one million vaccines per week, and has delivered a quarter of the 40 million doses it promised.
