Few Germans get the swine-flu vaccine

Early last month, the media reported that fear of swine flu was running rampant in Germany. Well, apparently they're over it.

Today Wall Street Journal's Health Blog writes:

Swine-flu shots are going begging in Germany, and the government is selling some of its vaccine on the foreign market, NPR's Shots blog notes. Only 5 percent of the overall population and 15 percent of doctors have gone to the trouble of getting vaccinated. It’s one of a few European countries where demand for the vaccine has been low.
