Maine To Purchase Additional Flu Vaccine

Maine To Purchase Additional Flu Vaccine

States that want to purchase additional orders for a drug that could slow the spread of a bird flu pandemic have until August First to decide. But Maine already has placed its order with the federal government for the maximum allowed.

Dr. Dora Anne Mills of the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention says she has placed an order for 137,000 doses of Tamiflu. That's on top of 195,000 doses the federal government is already providing for Maine.

Mills says the additional doses would bring the number of Tamiflu doses for Maine to the level recommended by the World Health Organization.

Also, those additional doses would be placed
in Maine and controlled by state officials.

Mills says she'll be requesting $2 million to
purchase the doses. She says the earliest the drugs would be delivered is next March.
