EXCLUSIVE: MILLIONS of Australians will be vaccinated against the deadly swine flu within weeks.
Special immunisation clinics are likely to be set up in major hospitals, while GPs will also administer the vaccine.
Vaccinations could begin by September 7 if approval is given by Chief Medical Officer Jim Bishop and a team of health experts.
The Government has ordered 21 million doses of the swine flu vaccine, enough to protect every Australian.

Put your seatbelts on...this is going to be a ride!
I imagine the "side effects" won't take place until about 3-4 days after initial vacination. But, we will see.
Pray for Aussies everywhere.

First I've heard of this. I'd LOVE to see them try and vaccinate me!
The first doses will be given to around 4.3 million priority people, including pregnant women and those with underlying medical conditions such as asthma, respiratory disease, cancer and obesity.
"This will be the biggest vaccination program in the shortest period of time that the Commonwealth has ever undertaken,'' the Health Minister said.
