Flu Vaccine

>> Flu Shot Info

a

strains

>> Why the shortage?
>> Almost half of the nation's flu vaccine will not be delivered this

>> any influenza vaccine this flu season. Chiron was to make 46-48 million

Recently
>> British health officials stopped Chiron from distributing and making
the

lots

>>
>> Why is our vaccine made in the UK and not the US?
>> The major pharmaceutical companies in the US provided almost 90% of the

profit

late

flu.
> The

US

>> companies stopped making the vaccine. The liability out weighed the
profit
>> margin. Since UK and Canadian laws prohibit such frivolous law suits UK

>> Canadian companies began selling the vaccine in the US.

>> By the way...the lawyer that represented the man in the flu shot law
suit
>> was a young ambulance chaser by the name of John Edwards.
