Hong Kong: Around 2.8 million doses of unwanted swine flu vaccine worth $28.2 million are to be thrown away, officials said here Thursday.
A health department spokesman said the vaccine would be discarded when they reached their expiry date in October. He added that people would be offered a new three-in-one jab in the autumn, providing protection from swine flu and two other strains of seasonal flu. The densely-populated former British colony is particularly sensitive to virus outbreaks after the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) killed 299 people and infected around 1,800 in 2003. IANS
