More vaccine but fewer takers, H1N1 surveys indicate/ WaPo

According to David Brown, 111 million doses of swine flu vaccine have been released to the cities and states by now. CDC estimated that in the second week of December 46 million Americans had received the vaccine.

And I saw a new case of Bell's palsy this week in someone a week after receiving both seasonal and swine vaccines. Is it coincidence or causation? Likely we will never know. But there were many cases of Bell's palsy reported after anthrax vaccinations, which led me to ask about vaccinations.

Flu activity is only "widespread" in 11 states per CDC. But how widespread could it be when less than 2% of tests for flu are now coming up positive?
