Despite 2nd U.S. Death, CDC Says Don't Close Schools for Swine Flu

Swine Flu Milder Than Feared, but More Deaths Expected

H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine continued...

As of now, planning for an H1N1 vaccine is moving ahead.

"The goal is really to move forward," Sebelius said. "Every effort will be made to make sure that if and when the call is made by scientists, vaccine production is ready to go."

Vaccine decisions, Sebelius promised, will be based on science.

"We will turn to scientists at the NIH [National Institutes of Health] and CDC to say when we have a vaccine that can inoculate people, and who are the target groups that will receive vaccination," she said. "Those decisions will not be made until a vaccine is ready to go."
