Huge Dutch order for swine flu vaccine

20th June 2009, Comments 0 comments

Dutch Health Minister Ab Klink has ordered 34 million vaccine doses against swine flu.

The Netherlands - The amount is enough to vaccinate each person in the Netherlands twice, if scientists ever were to make such a recommendation. Minister Klink, who already had an option on the vaccine, today signed contracts with a number of companies.

The doses should be ready by the end of the year at the latest.

Last week the World Health Organisation moved to classify the H1NI influenza as a pandemic.

The number of infections in the Netherlands now stands at 87.
