Switzerland Delays H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccination Campaign Until December

Swiss authorities have postponed the start of its mass swine flu vaccination campaign until the beginning of December reports the Neue Zürcher Zeitung.

The newspaper reports that some authorities are sending out letters to staff telling them that the vaccine campaign has been delayed until December because pharma companies cannot deliver enough vaccines.

The report comes at a time of growing concern over the safety of GlaxoSmithKline's Pandemrix swine flu jab and Novartis's Celtura jab, which was unexpectedly not given market approval by the Swiss drug regulator Swissmedic last week over safety data and contamination worries.

A Swiss Health Ministry spokesperon Jean-Louis Zürcher, however, told the NZZ that the information about the postponement of the swine flu campaign "was not quite true" and that pharma companies had plenty of vaccine, fuelling the impression that there are growing divisions over the need and timing of mass "swine flu" jab campaign within Switzerland.
