The delivery of the vaccine against swine flu are to be stopped from early January. That is the outcome of an agreement between several Swedish authorities and the vaccine manufacturer Glaxo Smith Kline, says Sveriges Radio Ekot.
Sweden was one of the few countries that made a deal with Glaxo Smith Kline for complete coverage and ordered 18 million doses of vaccine. When the recommendations were changed later from two to one dose per adult, it was clear that Sweden would have a large surplus of the vaccine.
But now, Swedish authorities have managed to stop further deliveries temporarily. In January,by which time 10 million doses will have been delivered, no further deliveries will be made.'
