Israel: H1N1 flu vaccine not suitable for pregnant women, sick kids/ Haaretz

Posted Oct 20 2009 10:05pm
Ha'aretz tells us that Israel only has adjuvanted vaccine available currently, and
The Health Ministry has decided to hold off on giving the swine flu vaccine to pregnant women and chronically ill children because vaccine stocks now in Israel contain a substance whose safety and effectiveness in pregnant women has not been fully substantiated.  
They will be offered unadjuvanted vaccine when it becomes available in November.
