U.S. will share H1N1 vaccine supply


WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKOW) -- President Barack Obama says the United States will share 10 percent of its H1N1 flu vaccine supply with other nations.

The White House announced the move would help fight the global spread of swine flu, known among scientists as H1N1.

The Obama Administration says the flu vaccines would be available through the World Health Organization.

The White House says the virus does not recognize international borders and the United States is working with Australia, Brazil, France, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom to share vaccines.
