  •  CDC acted promptly-vaccine was low yield (8+ / 0-)

    The seed virus used for the first vaccine batches begun in May proved to be low-yielding, something they couldn't know until August when the first vaccine was harvested.  They switched to a higher yielding strain as soon as they could. The only problem was that the original estimates of how much vaccine would be available were overly optimistic, which raised expectations, and led to frustration when the vaccine supplies were low initially.
