CDC Lists Priority Groups for Swine Flu Vaccination

Ad Feedback

Health officials are deciding who will be at the front of the line to get the swine flu vaccine this Fall.

The Centers for Disease Control has identified groups who are most vulnerable to the virus and is recommending they be vaccinated first.

They include:

  • pregnant women
  • health care workers
  • young people between 6-months and 24-years old
  • caretakers for babies less than 6 months old
  • and adults with certain health issues.

The recommendations will be used this Fall if there is a heavy demand for the vaccine with only a limited supply.

The CDC believes it does have a vaccine, and human trials begin next month. If all goes well, it will be available by October.
