Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

WASHINGTON (WFLX) - Just weeks after saying there may not be enough vaccine ready by October, the government says the push to get a swine flu vaccine is now ahead of schedule.

In fact, the vaccinations could start in as soon as three weeks. This all came after researchers found it may only take one vaccine to prevent swine flu.

U.S. Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius still warns flu activity remains unusually high for this time of the year.

The government plans to distribute the first doses of the vaccine across the to high risk groups - like health workers, pregnant women and young people.
