160M doses of swine flu vaccine due in Oct.

— The U.S. may have as many as 160 million doses of swine flu vaccine available sometime in October, even though manufacturers worldwide are having serious trouble brewing shots, federal health officials said Thursday.

The Food and Drug Administration may formally approve much of that vaccine before studies required to prove how well it works are completed, treating the new inoculations just like the recipe change that regular winter flu vaccine undergoes each year.

That doesn’t mean mass vaccinations would start before key information from studies of thousands of volunteers is in, U.S. officials stressed Thursday. Most of those studies start next month to determine if people will need one shot or two for good protection and how high a dose should be in each shot. The earliest results should start arriving in September and October.

"The Food and Drug Administration may formally approve much of that vaccine before studies required to prove how well it works are completed,"

You mean like no one has yet to present any peer reviewed study showing any vaccine prevents any disease?

"key information from studies of thousands of volunteers....to determine if people will need one shot or two for good protection and how high a dose should be in each shot. "

Wonder what that "key information" is. One or two shots? Do these vaccines work or not? Why need more? Yeah, someone will blather about "booster", etc., but they have not a clue what that means nor how it works. Seems to me it never did work, but generates guaranteed income for certain companies.

Anyone ever wonder why the US, with the most mandated forced vaccinations, has the most auto-immune cases? Hmmm.......
