H1N1 'Swine flu' vaccine
A novel strain of influenza (flu) virus subtype H1N1, originating from Mexico, is currently spreading across the globe. A vaccine against the strain could reduce its global impact but would take time to develop and manufacture. Different claims have been made about the time it would take to develop and produce a vaccine. This note describes how a pandemic vaccine for UK use would be manufactured, and alternative techniques for vaccine development and manufacture.
