Pandemic Vaccines May be Too Little, Too Late

If the swine flu outbreak develops into a pandemic — and that’s a big if — the earliest the public would see a vaccine against the disease would be September, a researcher said here at the conference on Influenza Vaccines for the World.

And that’s if the government asks industry to start production today, said Klaus Stohr, D.V.M., vice president and global head of Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics and former head of the World Health Organization’s global influenza program.

“What we have seen the last two or three days is that the current pandemic vaccine system is not ideal not only in terms of timing . . . but also in terms of vaccine production,” he said.
