H1N1 vaccine - we give it to GSK!

So MOH has secured 1 million doses of the GSK vaccine. I wonder how much the windfall was for GSK.

Canada apparently bought 50 million doses for more(?) than Can$400 million. So I guess we'd be looking at something in the region of about S$10 million?

I wonder if these vaccines come with AS03, the controversial squalene loaded adjuvants?

A little odd, considering that Prevnar has been around longer. But then there's that new factory you mentioned.

No, this is for the H1N1 vaccine.
