There is more H1N1 vaccine available now, yet a new survey shows more than half of Americans don't want to get the vaccine.
Over 100 million doses of H1N1 vaccine have been distributed throughout the United States and so far nearly 40% of children and 1/5 of people in the high risk group have been vaccinated. A survey by Harvard University found 55% of adults say they won't get the vaccine and 35% of parents stated they won't vaccinate their children. The reasons behind not getting vaccinated for the virus is safety concerns and the virus was less serious that originally thought.
Officials at the CDC are strongly urging all Americans to get the H1N1 vaccine in an effort to prevent a third wave of the virus.
