|14 April 2005: MORE INFLUENZA VACCINES ON THE MARKET|
The health department says the country is faced with a shortage of influenza vaccine this year as a result of a discrepancy in the quantification of the haemagglutinin content of one of the vaccines and release of this vaccine has been suspended pending re-evaluation.
Spokesperson Sibani Mngadi said vaccines available in South Africa were vigorously tested for safety and efficacy by the National Control Laboratory of South Africa and licensed by the Medicine Control Council.
