Survey finds one-third of Americans have found access to H1N1 vaccine

Posted:

ATLANTA, GA (WKOW) -- A new national poll found only about one-third of adults who have tried to get the H1N1 vaccine have been able to get it. The numbers are about the same for parents who tried to get the vaccine for their children.

The vaccine has been available for about a month, but supplies have been limited because of manufacturing delays. The shots are only supposed to go to those at high risk of complications.

The Harvard School of Public Health telephone poll also found that half of those who tried couldn't find information about where to get the vaccine. The survey of 1,000 adults was conducted last weekend and the results released Friday. There is a margin of error of plus/minus 3.8 percentage points.
