So this should come as no surprise if you have been paying attention.
Millions of swine flu vaccine, expired, are to be burned.
At least 40 million doses of the vaccine, or $260 million, will be written off as trash. The outdated vaccines will be burned.
But, this will not be the end of the unused vaccines expiring.
An estimated 30 million more doses will expire later and may go unused.
Lots of taxpayer dollars up in smoke!
The government placed three orders last year for a total of almost 200 million doses - an extraordinary amount and nearly double the amount of vaccine made in recent years for seasonal flu!
An extraordinary amount indeed. Nice profits for the pharmaceutical companies....
Even Trinidad is reporting millions of wasted taxpayer dollars
US$2m in swine flu vaccines could go to waste
Meanwhile in the UK- Contracts saddled UK with millions of unused swine flu vaccines
The swine flu pandemic cost Northern Ireland £41.8 million and Britain more than £1.2bn despite being much less severe than feared.
