Drugmakers Non-Committal on Swine Flu Vaccine Doses for Developing Nations

Drugmakers Non-Committal on Swine Flu Vaccine Doses for Developing Nations; Stay Informed About Efforts to Help the World's Poor at International Development News Today from EIN News

WASHINGTON, May 20 -- /EIN NEWS/ The World Health Organization has asked drug companies for swine flu vaccines for the world's poor, but few manufacturers have given the WHO any such commitment.

Only one drug manufacturer has publicly committed to donating large numbers of doses; some major drugmakers are afraid ramping up their swine flu efforts because it would cut into their seasonal flu vaccine production.
