Removing barriers to global pandemic influenza vaccination



Removing barriers to global pandemic influenza vaccination



Biosecurity and Bioterrorism 4(2): 168-175



This article clarifies the regulatory issues surrounding influenza pandemic vaccine for the larger policy community, and describes the need for regulatory harmonization. Vaccination would save lives in an influenza pandemic, but a lack of global manufacturing capacity will leave most of the world without access to vaccine. Capacity can be expanded if governments harmonize their regulatory policies.
