Read This: HHS has not learned from H1N1 mistakes: senators Politics Reuters:

"U.S. officials raised expectations too high in handling the swine flu
vaccination campaign and failed to allocate scarce vaccine effectively, two
influential U.S. senators said on Monday.
Connecticut independent Senator
Joseph Lieberman and Maine Republican Susan Collins praised the Health and Human
Services Department for working quickly, but said the agency had sent a mixed
message to the public.
'The glaring discrepancy between the demand for and
supply of H1N1 vaccine in our country has resulted in pregnant women standing in
line for hours, only to find no vaccine at the end,' they wrote to HHS Secretary
Kathleen Sebelius"
