More on vaccine mandates
There is one issue that we haven't discussed previously. Almost all of these mandates for influenza vaccination have been promulgated after the seasonal vaccine was produced for the upcoming season. Hospitals place their order for seasonal vaccine in the spring, which means that the supply of vaccine will not be sufficient where the late mandates have occurred. I don't think that will be an issue for the H1N1 vaccine since there appears to be low interest, at least among healthcare workers.
