Norway Regrets Having Stopped its Vaccine Production

Norwegian daily, Dagsavisen wrote that Norway stopped its own production of influenza vaccine in 1989 and speculated If it had not happened, Norway could have enough doses of vaccine.

In the article, contagious diseases professor Bjørg Marit Andersen from Ullevål Hospital argued that If Norway had continued the production of the vaccine, they could have had up to 1.5 million doses ready today, and this makes them completely dependent on supplies from abroad. Directorate Of Public Health, however, stopped the production of influenza vaccine in 1989, reported Dagsavisen.

She also noted that full production of swine flu vaccine in Norway would reduce the number of patients.
