Hoping to get vaccinated against swine flu? UHS just announced that they've recently received a new shipment of H1N1 vaccines.
Alas, slower-than-expected production means that the shipment is small, and thus you need to be part of one of the groups which the Massachusetts Department of Public Health thinks should receive priority for vaccinations to get one. Pregnant? Under 18? Have a kid that's younger than 6 months old or a chronic medical condition? Work in healthcare or emergency services? Unless you fit at least one of these categories, you're out of luck for now.
On the bright side, UHS says it is equipped to begin vaccinations for everyone as soon as they get enough of the vaccine, even if it happens over J-term. That, of course, depends on whether they will ever get enough, and UHS admits that they probably won't receive all 15,000 doses that they requested.
