Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- The swine flu vaccine will be available earlier than had been expected, the director of the nation's top disease agency told CNN Monday.

"We think the first doses of some of the vaccine forms should be available in about three weeks," said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Previously, the CDC had been predicting the vaccine would not be available until late October.
