Do you think doctors would be able to develop a vaccine that will prevent swine flu?

Findings suggest that doctors are very close to develop a vaccine by September end. A vaccine that will prevent swine flu, similarly on the lines of polio, where children are administered with a polio vaccine. presently, swine flu patients are administered with Tamiflu, a vaccine to deal with swine flu.Now my question is will doctors be able to develop such vaccine, a swine flu preventive vaccine?

@rexertea,
The vaccine has already been developed, it just hasn't been produced in sufficient quantities to roll out to the general public. Last estimate I heard was that it would be ready in October.

@engineer,
We'll be getting several million doses by the end of September...

@Francis,
France and the UK got the first 100,000 doses today.
In France, all French can get vaccinated from September 28 onwards.
(In Germany, this will happen a couple of weeks later.)

@engineer,
Thanks for letting me know, Engineer. I knew it was around the corner, but I was not sure about how they are making things happen
