Vaccine supplies for swine flu secured

18th May 2009

The government has confirmed that it has signed a £450 million contract to ensure 90 million doses of swine flu vaccine will be available by the end of 2009.

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."
