From the Daily News:
Swine flu is nothing to sneeze at - and neither was the cost of vaccinating 200,000 New Yorkers.
Protecting worried city dwellers from the virus - which did not claim nearly as many victims as feared - cost an of average $155 a shot, newly released numbers show.
H1N1 panic peaked at the end of summer, when doomsday estimates put the possible death toll at 90,000 Americans. Mayor Bloomberg unveiled a massive plan to vaccinate and educate the city.
Braced for a pandemic, the city spent $31 million on the swine flu campaign.
But swine flu has killed just 85 New Yorkers since the epidemic started in spring 2008, and only 200,000 people sought a vaccine.
"I think we did a great job," said Isaac Weisfuse, the flu coordinator at the New York City Heath Department.
