Swine Flu: Vaccination

Volume 506: debated on Thursday 4 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many units of Swine influenza vaccine are available to be dispensed to UK patients. [Official Report, 8 April 2010, Vol. 508, c. 16MC.] (319958)

As of 26 February 2010, the amount of swine influenza vaccine available to be dispensed was 25.3 million doses, held centrally, plus the stock currently held in the national health service across the United Kingdom.

This is based on the total amount of swine influenza vaccine delivered to the United Kingdom from Baxter and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) at approximately 38.5 million doses, less the total number of doses sent out to the NHS England, up to 24 February, which was approximately 13.2 million.
