Millions of Swine Flu Vaccine Doses Unused in Georgia

Georgia has millions of unused doses of the swine flu vaccine. Some local health departments are working hard to administer them before they expire.

State officials say Georgia got 3.5 million doses and less than a third of them have been used. That's 978,092 doses.

With only weeks left in the flu season, state and county health officials say they're faced with distributing a large amount of vaccine to a public that has largely lost interest in swine flu.

Lisa Crossman is director of clinical and prevention services at Cobb and Douglas Public Health. The Cobb/Douglas health agency has administered less than half of the doses intended for its own
clinics and mass vaccination events. She says people just aren't interested.
