An Inside Look at H1N1 Vaccine Production

On Sunday, 60 Minutes ran a fairly in-depth story about H1N1 vaccine production, distribution, and safety. You can watch the entire story (embedded below) or segments of the story here. CBS News has a few companion resources linked to the story and video on their website. One of the companion resources is a parents' guide to prevention of H1N1 contraction and what to do if you suspect that your child has H1N1.
