GlaxoSmithKline will provide 60 million doses of the vaccine and Baxter will supply 30 millions doses. Alan Johnson, health secretary, said: "These additional arrangements provide the opportunity by December this year to have enough pre-pandemic vaccine to protect at least half of the population from swine flu."
